Description pierre-yves samyn 2012-07-10 13:05:34 UTC

"Edit> Changes> Accept/Reject" automatically checks "Edit> Changes> Show".

This is needed to see deletions for example. Problem is that in this mode user can't see the format updates.

If user A applies green font and underlining color to a text, user B will see the change in the "user color" (may be blue, yellow or anything else...).

So user B has to accept/reject the change without seeing the effect.

We should perhaps think about improving this feature, perhaps by adding the ability to switch "show" mode from this dialog ?

I definitely agree on this one. I'm going to mark as NEW to move this out of UNCONFIRMED.
