Description Ariel Constenla-Haile 2014-03-26 10:55:58 UTC
- New Writer document
- Insert some dummy text (in English version, use AutoText DT + F3)
- Select a text range
- Insert a comment

Result: the selected text gets highlighted.
The menu View - Comments toggles the visibility of the comments in the right side of the document, but the highlighting remains.

As this highlighting is a visual hint that there is a comment, but is not part of the document itself, there should be a way in a WYSIWYG editor to turn this off (may be reuse View - Field shadings).
Comment 1 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2014-03-26 11:10:55 UTC
Ariel, your are absolutely right and I will work on a solution.

This is a defect in a new feature introduced for AOO 4.1.0. It should be fixed for AOO 4.1.0. I assume it will be be a "one-line-fix".
--> requesting show-stopper-status
Comment 2 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2014-03-26 11:17:31 UTC
The fix will be a one-liner-fix. I just forgot to check, if the corresponding view option "Show Comments" is set or not for the visibility of the overlay object which highlights the annotated text range.
