Description Frederic Parrenin 2018-11-29 14:38:15 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
- open a new writer document
- insert a text area
- enter some text
- now track changes
- try to modify the text in the text area
=> the text is permanently changed, track changes do not work inside the text area.
By comparison, Word 2013 is able to track changes in text areas.
