Feature for Writer: highlight commented text

Postby dmitry.kalashnikov » Wed Oct 12, 2011 12:27 pm

Well, I have a feature request for OO Writer: make Writer select the commented piece of text like in MS Word.

MS Word commented piece: (I want this)

OO Writer commented piece:
m_20110927-qiae-18kb.jpg

I'm ready to pay for this feature.

[Tutorial] Reporting bugs or suggestions

As I recall, that feature (a comment attached to a selection) is being worked on.

Ok, thanks for reply!

But when it will be ready?

Can I make it more critical with my money support? :) Because I need this feature ASAP!

Here's the OOo issue: Issue 118096: Support for comment anchor area on text selectiuon

I wouldn't expect any progress on this any time soon from OOo. They're still in the middle of the organizational move.

I don't know what's happening with this bug on the LibO side.

I don't know of any "directed" contribution channels, but you can always hire someone to implement the feature for you.

An easy way to fake this is to select the text required, and chose a different Font Colour, or Highlight Colour, then anchor the comment at the end or beginning of the selection.

I was thinking about that too, but it means some extra work if you want to delete a comment, or a lot of comments.
I'm also wondering if this can be implemented without changing the ODF definition as it would probably require open and close tags for the comment anchor instead of just an achor.

No problem; it's already provided for:
14.1 <office:annotation> (Link)
14.2 <office:annotation-end>

However, just editing the xml to add an end tag does not give a selection comment in Writer, so it looks like there's still a good bit of work to do to support it.

In many places where I've looked, the ODF standard is quite far ahead of what OOo actually implements.
