Some documents, like regularly updated manuals, require updated documents to be published with "lines changed" marked to the side of the text. Currently, Writer only allows the line color to be changed, but not line thickness or style. Exporting to pdf results in "Lines Changed" lines that are so thin that they are almost invisible. Expanding the menu "Options - Libre Office - Writer" to include a setting of line thickness would alleviate this issue.
Steps to Reproduce:
1: Create new document
2: Enable track changes
3: In menu "Options - Libre Office - Writer"; Verify that "Lines Changed" is enabled
4: Write something
5: Save document to PDF
6: Print document
"Lines changed" in pdf and printed document are almost invisible
"Lines changed" in pdf and printed document should have the option of having a line thickness that is hard to miss when reading the document

I don't think, that the are almost unvisible, but it would be more comfortable, if there is a thicker line width => set to NEW but also let's ask design team.
Thank you for setting to new.
I am maintaining a flight manual where we have exactly the problem described.
Both printed and digital versions suffer from this issue and I have had our national aviation authority give us the feedback that the lines are too thin, so it is not only me :)
Would have been opposed to such an option as the hairline is easy to recognize for me. But with all the evidence from the OP we should do it. Though perhaps not with a full linestyle but three predefined thicknesses, or so.
Any chance of doing something about the line-width?
The problem persists on our side.
Thanks in advance
