Description Lorenzo 2019-03-27 15:58:25 UTC
Background
----------
When reviewing a document which includes several track changes it is quite common to follow a pattern of: review change/ accept [or reject] / move to next.

Why this would improve usability of review/track change functionality
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Currently in tabbed UIs there are only separate "Accept" and "Next" buttons requiring to click on "Accept" then "Next" etc. This also requires to de-focus from the document to do the clicks, move between buttons, re-focus on the actual track change.

Additional remarks
------------------
This can actually be achieved in a rather convoluted way by:
- opening the "Manage Changes" window (or sidebar)
- Selecting the fist (uppermost)
- Clicking on Accept, the next change is selected

This however *only* woks if the default order (presumably order of appearance in the document) is kept and breaks in case the changes are sorted (by clicking on any of the headers e.g. like Author or Date)

Proposed enhancement seems cleaner, more intuitive and easier to use.

There is already a request about such commands.
This one may be kept around to remind us to actually put them to the menu / TC toolbar / sidebar / notebookbar.
