Description Francisco José Cañizares Santofimia 2016-01-22 20:06:09 UTC
How to reproduce:

1. Have one spreadsheet with one or more sheets (preferably filled with some data).
2. Copy this spreadsheet and add another Sheet into it and fill this new one sheet with some data.
3. Do Edit > Compare Document and compare against the other (doesn't matter if you do it with the first document or the one opened it happens in work ways).
4. ??? No changes.

Calc Compare Document (Spreadsheet Compare) should show in the "Manage Changes" list of "Compare Document" that a New Sheet has been added (shall it show the values in the new sheet as changes? Let's discuss that in the bug :) ).
