Description Victor 2020-09-05 22:15:21 UTC
When "track changes" is activated and visible, it is not possible to move the cursor to the left of a deleted character, i.e. the strike-through ones, by pressing backspace. This results, for example, in the impossibility to delete more than one character at a time when track changes are recorded and visible.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Activate track changes recording (edit > track changes > Record) and make the changes visible (edit > track changes > show) 
2. Try to delete some text by pressing backspace
3. Or set your cursor to the right of character recorded as deleted, i.e. marked as stroked-through

Actual Results:
cursor does not move to the left of the deleted character, making it impossible to delete more than one character at a time or navigate trough text marked as deleted using the backspace key

Expected Results:
cursor should have shifted to the left

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Tested on Debian Buster and Manjaro (both using KDE desktop)

Writer is working as expected

delete key is working as expected even in Writer (i.e. cursor moves to the right of previously deleted character)
