Description Lucas 2021-01-18 16:18:05 UTC
Highlight comments text in Writer, similar to Microsoft Office 2010. Examples attached.

Actual Results:
There isn't this function implemented.

Expected Results:
Highlighting sections of text commented by the user.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Hello, I would like to suggest that a function to highlight the text of the comments made in Writer be implemented. Similar to Microsoft Word 2010. I use comments to study, and highlighting the text in my own comment is very useful.

Example: ibb.co/WBVcjcS

Interesting.. highlighting does actually work.. only the UI disabling it.
Select text in comment, Menu Format -> character -> highlighting tab

Saving docx and the highlighting will disappear
