Description rwoodnz 2009-05-08 03:37:41 UTC
In Writer The state of setting changes/record is not retained when the file is
closed if the file format is RTF when running Open Office on XP. My version is

This setting needs to be retained for interoperability with MS Word users, as MS
Word does retain its equivalent - Track Changes - when selected in an RTF file.

Note I found this problem also in the Linux version when saving as RTF but
worked fine when using ODT files. However, most MS Word users we deal with today
can't open ODT so this is not a solution yet.

Cannot reproduce.

Maybe it is the same problem as in issue 84703 or issue 74153? If not, please
attach a sample file.

Ah, you are talking about the state of enabled tracking changes.

MRU->HBRINKM: when you enable redlining i Writer and save to RTF, the redlining
will be switched off after re-opening the document. You have to switch it on
manually again.
