Description Frederic Parrenin 2017-08-16 09:46:37 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
- open a new .odt document
- type 'nf' and then click F3 to insert a numbered formula
- go to Edit > Track Changes > Save
- now select the whole document with CTRL-A and deleted
=> the formula object still appears (BTW, there is no way to see the formula is deleted, it should be strike-through).
- now save the document
=> the formula object is replaced with a box with 'Object 2' written in red
- now select all and discard the change
=> the formula is lost, it does not come back
