Description opensuse.lietuviu.kalba 2016-07-15 07:43:06 UTC
After clicking text in main part of Writer window, 
it would be nice to activate corresponding item in list (e.g. in sidebar tab for Tracking changes).
Comment 1 Heiko Tietze 2016-10-11 13:05:36 UTC
It works as you describe: character and paragraph styles are selected according what is active at the cursor. And also the direct formatting like bold, italic etc. is toggled correctly.
Either I don't understand what you mean or it's buggy in 5.1.4 (testing with 5.3alpha). So could you please elaborate a little bit.
Comment 2 opensuse.lietuviu.kalba 2016-10-23 19:05:59 UTC
It is not about character/paragrph styles/formating.

To reproduce:
1. Open any document with tracked multiple changes (removed/inserted text) in diferent places of document.

2. Make sure changes are visible: Edit - Track Changes - Show changes

3. Open dialog with list of changes:
a) You can go via menu Edit - Track Changes - Manage Changes dialog. 
b) or also similar list may appear in sidebar: But you will be able to see sidebar tad for Tracking changes, only after you enable experimental functions in LibreOffice Options.

4. If you click item in list of changes, then changed text is marked/selected in document (this is OK); but if you click at any changed (removed/inserted) text, then corresponding item of changes will not activated (I wish – it should; at least MS Word do this).

Illustration of the issue

Selecting one of the changes jumps to the respective position in the document while the other way doesn't work. In the example the last item in the list of changes was clicked (underline) and then the first edit clicked in the document (italic). Expected result is that this item is activated in the list of changes.
