Description Benoît Robin 2018-07-10 09:16:28 UTC
As of 6.0.5 (I check the point on each early release...), Libre Office still displays deletions inline by striking deleted text. As soon as you've reviewed a paragraph a couple of times, inline deleted text makes final texte just illegible, making further working near-impossible.

It's been years I want to switch to Libre Office for writing my short stories and novels, but I can't because of this lacking feature. So I still use MS Word and MS Word only.

That feature is all that's needed to make me permanetly switch to Libre Office, and this might be the case of many users who deal with large texts.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Activate changes recording and display,
2. Type some §s, then edit them, deleting parts in the process.

Actual Results:
The paragraphs appear with inline deleted text.

Expected Results:
Just the same as the actual result, alas !

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Deleted text on ballons in the margin, not spamming actual final §s.
