Track changes on deletions

Hi… In the past, the track changes such as deletion and addition of text were placed inline (deletions were strike-through and additions were underlined). Sometimes it was hard to read but all information was there for the revision job.

Now deletions are put in the left margin and I found no way to display the deletion in full, which prevents me to review correctly.

Any trick to get the old way?


Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > View. Under Display Tracked Changes, deselect Tracked deletions in margin.

Another way: on the Track Changes toolbar, there is a drop-down menu on the Show Track Changes icon. One of the choices is “Deletions in Margin” - the others are “All Changes Inline” and “Insertions in Margin”.

IMO that checkbox should be moved to the top of the Changes subtree and, if checked, the other options should be greyed out.
