3. remove the whole word with backspace
--> The bookmark still exists with no representation

The bookmark gets removed by deleted the representing word with backspace, even it is the first word in the document.

No bookmarks gets removed. I removed them in the navigator.

I get the same result as Dieter and it seems to be the way it was intended.

Julian: how do you prove your claim "Bookmarks on other positions gets removed after deleting the whole word they belong to"? Do you check in the navigator or the list in the Insert - Bookmark dialog afterwards?

Ok, now I get it: you have to select around the word before you delete. It is not enough to simply select the whole word. However, this means you *can* delete the bookmark + first word, when you start your selection after the first word and select backwards.

I am not sure, if this is worth the effort to try and change. It is obviously related to how the bookmark is represented in the document structure (I didn't look).

But I think as the discussion shows, the problem is more general: You alsways have to delete the word with at least one space, character or dot before or behind the word. But it should also be possible to delete the bookmark, if you only delete the word

=> update of summary
