Edit comments is not enabled in the review pan or tools menue

Post by sanitair » Wed May 30, 2018 3:43 pm

I just installed FreeOffice on my Ubuntu 14.04 machine.

I tried to create a new text file and add review comments to it but the edit buttons are disabled.

selection of text while the comments pane should be enabled
I tried to open an existing file and add comments to it but I also failed due to the same reason

The comments pane should be enabled but it is not appearing as shown in the image
From the options, the document properties / reviewing should be enabled as below picture

The reviewing pan of the document properties
When I try to do it from the tools menu I have the same issue.

In the documentation it seems it is a pretty simple operation but it seems I am missing something.

With the current version of FreeOffice 2018 you cannot create comments but (if there are already existing comments in a documents) you can edit them.

Thank you for the update.
I am not sure why I can not add a comment while I can edit one !!
When this critical feature will be available? at which version?
