This report arises from my poking at bug 137684. I shall copy here or
link anything interesting.
(0) Tools > Options > "LibreOfficeDev Writer" > View > "Tracked
deletions in margin" : checked
(1) Run LO with command line options --norestore --nologo --writer
(2) Type "the quick brown". Document has "The quick brown"; left
margin is empty.
(3) Take menu options Edit > "Track Changes" > Record. No visible
(4) Type "<bs><bs><bs><bs><bs>". Document has "The quick ".
Observed : left margin is empty.
Expected : left margin shows struckthrough "brown".
(5) Type "<ctrl>+Z".
Observed : Document has "The quick n", and the "n" is
selected. Left margin has struckthrough "b".
Expected : Document has "The quick b", nothing selected. Left
margin has struckthrough "rown".
Theses observations are from a local build of commit 5219c6bd
built and running on debian-buster.
Likely the deletions haven't compressed this way, yet: all letters deleted separately are there in different redlines, and only the first deletion (empty space) showed up.
