I am editing a document. I turn on "track changes" and I turn off "show changes" so I can make sure the spacing and other matters are appropriate.
Every time I save the document, Writer activates "show changes" again so I have to turn it off again. This is very annoying, and new behavior with version 5.
I can not confirm with Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha1+

Would you like to see a video of it happening?
Possibly it is because you are not testing with the same version I am using. My version information:
Build ID: 37b43f919e4de5eeaca9b9755ed688758a8251fe
Locale: en-CA (en_CA)
I should note that there is no option on the form to choose the version I am using, so I chose the latest version I could see. Sorry for any confusion this caused.
Sorry: found the version now. Will update the bug info
I can not confirm with version 18.104.22.168 (x64) too. Win7.
For the test, could you rename your LibreOffice directory profile (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile) and give it a new try? Thank you
I cannot save the edited file although I am the only user of this computer and I have changed the directory's settings to allow edits. I keep getting a message that I need admin permissions, which I have.
I am going to try uninstalling Libre Office, blowing away any remaining directories, and installing again.
Here, by the way, is the bootstrap file contents. It seems to be pointing to version 4 as my UserInstallation location. I had 4 installed and upgraded to 5.
Uninstalled Libre Office. Blew away v. 4 directory. Reinstalled v. 5. Same error. bootstrap file still points to a location in v. 4 (which does not now exist, of course), and I still cannot edit it. Getting the same bad behavior as initially reported.
Are you saving as docx? If yes, set as resolved duplicate of bug 89991
