Example 7.docx - original file with comments, *.jpg - how document looks like in MS Office and LibreOffice

LibreOffice 3.5.3.2 (Final) Russian UI/Locale
Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80
on Russian Windows XP Professional SP3 (32bit)

In LibreOffice 3.5.3 (Final) there is no comments (notes) with "formatting".

In MS Office 2007 SP3 all fine
Comment 1 Florian Reisinger 2012-09-29 15:53:26 UTC
Can't confirm this... The first line is not shown, because there is nothing to change. Where text is affected, everything is working compared to MS Office 2010
Comment 2 Timon 2012-09-29 18:18:28 UTC
Do not agree. MS Office shows not only comments, but also comments with formatting that was changed in document.
In the first line MS Office shows: "Formatted: no interval, to the left"
In the last line MS Office shows: "Formatted: Font: Bold"
LibO does not show such "formatting comments" at all.
Comment 3 Florian Reisinger 2012-09-29 19:54:04 UTC
The bold thing is shown in a different way (right click)...

If you do think that there is no need to display comments with formatting changes, then I assume that bug is "resolved - invalid".
Comment 6 retired 2013-05-30 09:22:10 UTC
I tested the sample document with LO 4.1b1.

The comments all show in normal font. As screenshot of Timon shows MS Office displaying bold fonts in some comments.

I can use bold formatting in LO as well but it is not initially displayed for the sample document. REOPEN.

The problem is slightly different. MSOffice indicates if document formatting was changed. For example, text was written in Arial 10, but another person made correction to Times New, 12, Bold. So we can see "Formatted: Font: Bold, Font Name: Times New, Font size: 12".

LibreOffice could not show such document changes.

pdf file exported with comments from MSOffice

As you can see, there are 2 more comments (first one and the last one) where formatting changes in commented text are shown. We can't see them in LibreOffice.

Thanks to Adam, this comments are preserved (see bug 65265). Import of this comments is not implemented yet (bug 65262).

I hope you dont mind, but lets mark this bug as a dupe of bug 65262, because it's a little bit cleaner bug report.

Kind regards,
Joren

Sorry for the noise.

I think I was a bit to fast over here. Looks like bug 65262 is not a dupe of this one.

Kind regards,
Joren

This is not about bold and not even about docx. Even formatting changes in odt are not shown in details. 
So this bug may be: "Show text formatting changes with tracked changes". In order to be shown in margins, it requires Bug 34355 which is experimentally available, so it's not dependence now.
But Manage Track Changes has simple Action now: + and X although there exists Formats as a separate action, apart from Insertion and Deletion (and Table Changes).

If I add comments to an odt, make part of that comment bold, close and reopen, the bold formatting of the comment is still there. So I don't understand what you want to say :)
Can you pleas explain?

This bug is about text formatting changes that are not shown anywhere nor in comments and not about formatting of a comment.
