Description Terrence Enger 2020-10-26 14:39:14 UTC
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

Per test:

    (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
(2020-10-24) configured
    --with-vendor=Terrence Enger
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.
