Record Track Changes works reluctantly on Experimental Contextual Groups Interface. There is no clue (highlight) to know if it is working or not.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Experimental Features and restart LibreOffice.
2. Choose View - User Interface - Contextual Group
3. Write something then click the Record icon from the interface.
4. Keep on writing then click again the Record icon.
Firstly, the icon doesn't indicate if it is active or not. In addition, if the recording option is active, sometimes the icon doesn't make it passive.
There must be a clue either the icon is active or not.
User Profile Reset: Yes
It happens only on Contextual Groups menu. Recording icons work very well on other interfaces.
UX of the NB variants are hardly to track in general, maybe this particular variant is not meant for track changes (which is not the fact). So up to the designer to decide what to do.
Another note: the contextual groups are meant for beginners who need less functions and more guidance. The NB should be as static as possible and has only a few contextual options. All other properties are set via sidebar and toolbars. So when you do TC it's supposed to be done by those means. See also https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/ToolBar
But the issue with toggled Record button is true. And the sidebar should be open and the TC toolbar have to pop up.
Dear Sabri Unal,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
