During a book project where some are using LibreOffice and some are using MSWord, we're noticing that if corrections are processed in Libre office 3.4.4 and the file looks totally clean, when you open it up in Word, they are still there, and you end up having to delete them a second time.

What settings are you using for tracking changes? If you have Edit | Changes > | Record ticked in LibreOffice, you will be preserving the original along with the changes. If you have Edit | Changes > | Show unticked, you will see just the edited version and not the hidden originals (so your document will look "clean").

When you open a document that includes tracked changes in Word, the original items will be there along with the changes. What you see will depend on your Review setting in Word. In particular, if you have this set to Original, you will not see any of the changes.

o If you don't want to track changes, untick Edit | Changes > | Record in LibreOffice. o If you want to track changes but then want to see in Word what you have done, change the Review setting in Word.

I trust this helps.
