Rich RTF comment export in LibreOffice Writer

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

As it has been reported in tdf#94377, the state of Writer comment contents in the RTF export filter wasn’t great.

With two recent changes, however, the situation is now much better:

  • I’ve added support for multiple paragraphs

  • I’ve added support for both paragraph and text portion formatting

It wasn’t necessary to implement this from scratch, because comment contents uses the same editeng store as the shape text, and there formatting was already handled. A benefit of this code sharing is that shape text also handles multiple paragraphs without a problem now. :-)

The commits are backported to libreoffice-5-1, so users will see them already in the upcoming 5.1.0 release.
