Presently, the context menu has 4 entries when you right-click on a tracked change - Accept Change, Reject Change, Next Change, Previous Change. It would be good to also have 'Change Comment' after 'Reject Change'.

example of the track change right-click context menu
Removed see also link as that bug relates to general comments and thing bug replaces to comments in track changes. Please reverse if you think i'm wrong Adolfo.
Do whatever you want, I don’t care.
For me this seems to be logical, but I would say not only on a tracked change, but also for a right mouse click on an unchanged word / text passage.
If you are working together with a group of coworkers on one document and you get this document with tracked changes then it could be that you want to insert a comment on a tracked change but also on a word or text passage that has not been changed.
Andy: You would use regular comments in that scenario.
@Jay: Thanks for your feedback.
Would it in this case be interesting to be able to add a comment also with a right mouse click or would this blow up the right mouse click context menu? I am not yet sure, if this would be good or not.
It was an option i was thinking to suggest, but now insert comment is a button in the standard toolbar in the next release, so it isnt as crucial as it was before. :D

As 'change comment' isnt used very much, most likely because its only an odf feature, and is available in the track changes toolbar, there isnt as much of a need for it in the context menu.
