I need your guru help bad. I have read through some posts re track changes, and none seem to indicate having had this issue. When i track changes, instead of expected behaviour on tracking deletions... the deleted text actually deletes, and yes "show" is selected in edit menu and tracking is enabled because the rest of the text is formated as per normal track change formatting (underlined and specifically coloured by author). When i go into accept reject changes it only lists insertions, none of the deletes I do are shown, or can be filtered as they do not exist. All I get is insertions. There is no way to specifically configure writer with regard to what it will and wont track, you simply turn on tracking and it tracks ALL actions, i assumed. Has anyone else had this issue and if so how do you solve it?
I am running the latest install, downloaded 4 days ago, and have uninstalled and reinstalled app to see if this helped, it didn't, so I hunted through registery getting rid of any entries related to openoffice, and reinstalled still not good. The thing that is even scarier, is that when i first enabled tracking it behaved as expected, deletions remained on page with a strikethrough, and could be seen in the accept reject list, I was not sure as i had never worked with tracking before and thought hmmm i really hate that strikethrough and tried to remove it using the formatting toolbar and of course not much happened. I closed the .doc opened it again and since then cannot track deletions, Please do help guys I have an essay due tonight and showing tracking is part of the assessment criteria.
