Description init-bugzilla 2013-05-03 10:50:04 UTC
It seems no to be foreseen that with Libre Office Writer one can make a comment into a text passage that already is marked up with another comment: a nested comment so to say.

Visually it sometimes look like the comment #2 is embedded in the comment#1.

But if you save the output and extract the zip and look into content.xml a comment#2 that you included into a comment#1 will not be shown and strange behavior can be seen. 

Faulty behavior becomes more explicit ones the ODT is reloaded: no nested comments visible.

We would have needed this functionality of nesting one comment into another one for our W3C ITS2.0 Implemenation of Libre Office (more info on: http://www.init.de/en/libreofficeWriter). There we want to create and readout comments using the UNO API but now will use bookmarks to stick additional information to a text.

Ways to reproduce:
1.)	Create a new Writer Document
2.)	Write some text
3.)	Make a selection on text
4.)	Insert an annotation #1
5.)	Make a subselection on the large annotation
6.)	Insert an annotation #2
7.)	Make a subselection on the large annotation again
8.)	Insert an annotation #3
9.)	Save the Document to ODT / ODF (both buggy)
10.)	Close Writer
11.)	open content.xml with an editor and see comments not inserted properly or reopen ODT in a new libre office writer and see the missing comments

Behaviour seen in LO 3.6.5 and 4.0.1 on Windows platform

Sure - we don't have conversational or nested comments; it's an enhancement we'd like - we're accepting patches of course :-)
