Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-17 01:17:03 UTC
As stated by Michael Meeks in bug 47677 comment 25, "I'd love it as a stock toolbar that automatically shows up for documents with red-lining enabled :-)", it would be useful for the changes toolbar to automatically appear when a document with track changes is opened.
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2014-11-01 22:20:20 UTC
I would expect it that way.
Comment 2 Björn Michaelsen 2014-12-02 10:53:13 UTC
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved Writer EasyHacks for better visibility.

see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details

Hi László Németh,
since the inforbar was implemented as an alternative solution for this, should 
be reverted in branch libreoffice-7-1 ?
