Comments and Track Changes don't work as expected

Wed Aug 05, 2015 4:03 pm

Hello,

I have a document that has many comments. The editor then edits the document whilst reviewing the comments. Track changes is on.

When the editor deletes text that is highlighted for a comment, the highlighted region for the comment changes.

<?oxy_comment_start?>Now is the time<?oxy_comment_end?> becomes:
<?oxy_delete text="Now "?><?oxy_comment_start?>is the time<?oxy_comment_end?>

When the editor deletes the entire highlighted text, the comment PIs are removed completely.

This is a problem as user's point to MSWord which maintains the track changes and comments and expects this behavior.

I wrote a DocumentModificationFilter to intercept delete and split the PIs around the deletes but this is very slow and not usable.

Do you have any plans to fix this?

Oxygen 17.0
WorkspaceAccessPlugin

Thanks!

Hi Deanna,

I understand and I can reproduce both cases. I will add an issue and see what we can do on our side.

Hi,

Just to update this post, the issues should be fixed in Oxygen 17.1.
