Description Andrew Wetmore 2015-10-17 11:27:54 UTC
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.

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:

Comment 3 Andrew Wetmore 2015-10-17 16:58:52 UTC
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.
Comment 4 Andrew Wetmore 2015-10-17 17:32:50 UTC
Sorry: found the version now. Will update the bug info
Comment 5 raal 2015-10-17 18:34:49 UTC
I can not confirm with version (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.
Comment 7 Andrew Wetmore 2015-10-19 12:23:45 UTC
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.

ProductKey=LibreOffice 5.0
Comment 8 Andrew Wetmore 2015-10-19 13:20:07 UTC
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.
