Description Andrew Shadura 2013-01-16 13:05:36 UTC
Deleting or adding images while “record changes” is on, isn't actually saved; when “show changes” is enabled, those aren't displayed as changes (with overstrike/underline and colour).

Reproducible always regardless of the file format.
Comment 1 Joel Madero 2013-01-16 16:36:53 UTC
Verified on, changing version.

@Reporter - Version reflects the oldest version that you have seen this behavior, not the newest that it has been tested on. We use comments to say we tested on a later release.

Marking as:
New (confirmed)
Normal (bug that affects a basic feature of LibO, makes it only half functional)
Low (only affects one subset of a feature, inserting images, not a lot of users affected)

Thanks for helping out!

I do not think this is a bug, maybe can be request for enhancement.

In the LibreOffice help

Recording Changes 

The review function is available in LibreOffice for text documents and spreadsheet documents.

Not all changes are recorded. For example, the changing of a tab stop from align left to align right is not recorded. However, all usual changes made by a proofreader are recorded, such as additions, deletions, text alterations, and usual formatting.
Comment 3 Andrew Shadura 2013-01-16 23:57:55 UTC
“If a bug is documented, it is a feature”. It doesn't work like this. A direct LO competitor does that in the supported format, so it's certainly a bug, or a bad format support.

It doesn't say “text deletions”. So it applies to images as well, doesn't it?

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

I think Track Changes should record deletions of images.

This is still a valid bug/enhancement request on LibreOffice (running on macOS 10.12.3 Sierra). When choosing to compare a document with a previous version where an image has been replaced by another, only the image from the starting document is shown and there is no mention of the change in the Manage Changes window.
Comment 8 Alex Thurgood 2017-02-17 14:08:10 UTC
The feature in question was never (completely) implemented to my knowledge, at least not in prior to the creation of the LibreOffice project and certainly not in StarOffice before that.

Setting as RFE.
