Change tracking improvements in LibreOffice Writer spellcheck popup

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

If you ever had to review a document that had change tracking enabled in LibreOffice Writer, you might have noticed an odd behaviour: if e.g. the inserted text has a spelling error, it’s not easy to reject that change. The reason for this is that in case of spelling errors, right mouse click activates the spellcheck popup menu, which lacked the change tracking operations previously.

As you can see in the above screenshot, this is no longer an issue: LibreOffice 4.2 will have the previous change, next change, accept change and reject change operations in the spellcheck popup menu as well.

In one sentence, with LibreOffice 4.2, Writer allows to reject a spelling error it detected itself. ;-)
