Description Olivier Hallot 2012-03-21 13:34:43 UTC
Record changes in text document can be bypassed by the context menu of a changed text

Step to reproduce

Take an empty text document, fill with dummey text.

Activate Edit - Changes - Record 

Activate File  - Properties - Security - Record changes ang give a password

Save file, close file

Open file

Type anything, changes are recorded

place cursor in changed text

Context menu - Accept /reject is hot and live.

Desired results; Accespt / Reject should not be active.

Gosh, a feature I never used yet :-) The semantics are to allow another commenter to add/change stuff, but not to be able to remove existing red-lining ? if so I see what's up :-)

I imagine this is down to the new: FN_REDLINE_ACCEPT_DIRECT etc. items that were added to make this more ergonomic not having the right sensitivity.

I guess that this code:

sw/source/ui/uiview/viewstat.cxx (GetState)
            case FN_REDLINE_ACCEPT_DIRECT:
            case FN_REDLINE_REJECT_DIRECT:
                SwContentAtPos aCntntAtPos( SwContentAtPos::SW_REDLINE );
                Point aCrsrPos = pWrtShell->GetCrsrDocPos( sal_True );
                if( !pWrtShell->GetContentAtPos( aCrsrPos, aCntntAtPos ) )
                    rSet.DisableItem( nWhich );

Is simply not powerful enough to notice and adapt to this change-track password-protection, and that some code from the existing changes accept/reject logic needs inserting into there.

Turn into an easy-hack.

I'm trying to fix this. 
Since this is my first one, I'm not sure that I can do it, let me try anyway.
