When tracking changes in LO, the user can choose to show or not show the changes. When the changes are shown, new text appears with an underline and removed text appears with a strikethrough.
Please allow users to collapse the strikethrough text, such that it can be seen _where_ text was removed but do not expand it to show the original text. I recommend a small triangle marker similar to that used to designate where comments exist, however in a different colour.
This feature is important as the omitted text itself makes reading the revised copy difficult, however it is important to know where text was removed. Enabling and disabling the collapse should be available from the main menu, and it should be able to have a keyboard accelerator assigned.
I like the idea, I don't think I've ever seen this implemented but I have routinely thought similarly that it's difficult to read a document that has show changes on. Going to mark as NEW and leave the priority at Medium.

This is definitely useful for some technical authoring tasks.
In some cases, we create PDF specification document updates where the changes are only marked using change bars... the text itself appears as the latest version without any "clutter" of tracked changes colouring. This allows the reader to see at a glance where changes have been made, but can focus on the new text.
It would be very helpful to be able to hide deleted text (and in such a way that there is no indication of the deletion, other than when change bars are enabled).
