I started out using OOo back before you could read/write in .doc format
0.x.x or 1.x.x.

When LO came around, I switched to it.  
I am currently using both 4.0.5 and 4.1.1 between my desktop and laptops.

What do you refer to as a "primitive Win7 box"?  I have a laptop that is
from 2007 or 2008 that ran Vista, but now runs Win7 Professional.  Also,
I have one that I bought this year that runs Win7 Home Premium.  Both
are dual booting for Ubuntu and Win7.

I have had little issues with LO on Win XP [still have a laptop with
that], Win Vista [gone], and Win7 systems. 

Also, there is the "collaboration with heavy editing" statement.  Yes,
even if you have Win7 and Word 2010 on both systems, you still could
have collaboration issues.  I know of people that could not get it all
of the "bugs" worked out to "collaborate" with each other sharing the
files via email.  They did not want to use "the cloud".

I have not read the other posts in this thread, but are you using any
collaboration add-on or are you using the "internal" options for Word
20?? and LO.

amazing. Of course I am in a primitive Win7 box... but after using OO
since before 1.0 and then LO when it forked, the number of frustrations has
now risen to unbearable levels. I'll still prefer LO for my own projects,
but no longer can I use it when I'm in a collaboration with heavy editing,
which is often the case.

​​M​y experience is quite the contrary - i e, that LO vastly improved after
the fork provoked by Oracle. But YMMD....


PS I don't happen to have a Win7 machine at home, but was able to check on
a 64-bit Win8 box and, once again, did *not* experience the difficulties
you described. Removing a comment immediately removes all highlighting and
font size is remains that of my choice...

There is a feature in Word that is not well supported in LO and is
my back....

when people make a comment in Word, the text is highlighted and that
highlighting disappears again when you delete the comment.

Try to do that in LO, and it's hopeless. The highlighting does not
disappear, and worse yet, the final letter of the highlighted section
out several fontsizes smaller, thus requiring two manual adjustments
time you delete a comment. Try to do that in a doc with hundreds of

I don't remember encountering this problem in earlier versions of Writer
; nor after checking, do I see it in version, at least on my main
machine running 64-bit Linux Mint 15. When I delete a comment, the
relevant highlighting disappears immediately, and font sizes are also those
I have chosen for the text in question....
