It would be great if LO could accept more recorded changes in one step by marking
(highlighting) a part of main text (including more recorded changes) and selecting the button (Edit-Changes-)Accept or reject recorded changes: all recorded changes in the highlighted selected text should be marked (by the blue line) in the Accept or Reject Changes - window.
Now if you highlight a part of a text containing more track-changes and open the Accept or Reject Changes - window, the next first track change (after the highlighted text) appears in in.
I second this idea. I also mark it as "enhancement" instead of "bug"

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

The same for LO 188.8.131.52.
In LO 5.2 the demanded behaviour is present, it is possible to mark and accept/reject more changes in one step.
It would be WFM then, not Fixed as you closed.
But, to mark changes in "Manage Changes" window always worked. If you mark there, changes in text are marked. So it's not clear why you would think this is solved?
What I understood here is that you mark a part of main text (including more recorded changes) and all recorded changes in the highlighted selected text should be marked (by the blue line) in the "Manage Changes" window so that you can accept or reject them.
I am pretty sure that in 3.4 it was not possible to accept more changes at one step (or it was not simple as it is now), because I used to work with track changes for years and this lack of possibility was in 2011 very disturbing for me. It was probably possible to mark and accept them in the "Manage Changes" window, but it did not work by highlighting the main text and use the Accept change button...
So what I had asked for in this bug report was: Accepting change in two simple steps - 1. highlighting the main text and 2. accepting them by pressing the Accept change button.
The behaviour you are describing (highlight text - open "Manage Changes" window - automatically marking all the changes in the highlighted text by a blue line) could be added indeed (for example for the purpose, you want to accept changes on a huge text except one-two changes), but I personally do not need this behaviour.
And I am not sure if this lack of behaviour should be classified as a bug or better as an enhancement. Maybe to close this bug (for reasons I described) and open a new one with a clear description should be a better way, if you feel that should remain as a bug? I do not know, I am just a user of LO.
So depends on you or others - for me, this "bug" I had reported in the past is not longer present and therefore I closed it.
OK, I'll close this one as WFM.
What I ask is partially in Bug 100924 so let's see there.
