Summary0016601: Crashes when changing the margins of a large document (500 pages) in the document settings
DescriptionCannot change the margin settings of my text book document (500 pages, 2.1 MB)

My QT Version: 5.12.8
Scribus: 1.5.7

Same behaviour with Scribus 1.5.6svn
Steps To Reproduce1) Load my sla file (a text book of 500 pages with black and white photos)
2) Go to the Document Settings (in german: "Dokument einrichten")
3) Go to the general margin settings ("Ränder und Anschnitt")
4) Change the inner and outer margin value
5) Check the check box Apply changes on all pages ("Änderungen auf alles Seiten anwenden")
6) Wait for about 10 seconds after clicking OK

Scribus crashes with the following memory error log:

Hi didierhinz.

Please upload a sample document. Thanks.

Same crash with 1.5.8svn !

Here some of my observations:
When I reduced the document size by deleting the last 250 pages (p. 250-500), then Scribus did not crashed when changing the pages' margins.
However, when I tried to delete the first 250 pages (p. 1-250) of my document, then Scribus crashed during this deletion, displaying "Signal 0000006".
And: When I tried to delete the first 125 pages (1-125), then Scribus did not finish this task until I gave up, i.e. after 90 minutes (!). The CPU usage (top -i) was between 99,7 and 100,3% during all this long time.
So, I guess that the problem is connected to a general memory allocation issue, rather than to the specific margin functionality.

Here my original SLA file, compressed.

I have a new fact.

When I delete the end notes at the end of the document (pages 497-499) from my sla document, then Scribus does not crash anymore!!

So, I am now pretty sure that the problem lies in the end notes feature (in German: "Einfügen" > "Marken" > "Fuß-/Endnote").

By the way, this feature makes a lot of other problems as soon as the end notes do not fit one single page. For example, my 82 end notes cover 3 document pages (3 linked text frames), then after each "Save document" operation, the order of the 3 frames is corrupted: i.e., the first frame moves at the very end of the document. In addition, after each editing (anywhere in the document), the height of the first frame is shortened a bit...
