Known issues

Splits and merges show a different change visualization starting from 7.12

Splits and merges occur when 2 paragraphs are splitted by an enter or merged by pressing backspace or delete.

Usually, a split happens to the paragraph underneath, and a merge happens to a paragraph above. In some cases, this is visualized the other way around. Let's look at an example:

Ideally this would have been visualized as a deletion first, and the addition after. Like this:

This happens because we try to calculate the most minimal diff. A future release of Document History will introduce a new visualization for splits and merges of blocks of text.

Expanding and collapsing tables may cause visualization issues

Expanding and collapsing tables with changes inside that use the collapsible table infrastructure may cause unexpected selecting/deselecting of change cards.

We will fix this bug in a future release.

Historical markup labels might be wrong

Only changes in attributes are rolled back when calculating the markup label for an element in Fonto Document History. This can result in incorrect markup labels if they depend on any other part of the document. This can for example happen if the configuration depends on the contents of the node and those contents changed.

Missing popover when using the 'Comment' button on deleted elements.

If Document History is opened from Fonto Review, using the 'Comment' button on a deleted element will not open a popover when navigating back to Fonto Review. It will only place the cursor at the position.
