Additional notes

  • attached recording with the issue;

This was a potential feature for Track Changes M1, but it got de-prioritized in favor of other features.
It's on the backlog in the PRD. I'll mark it as a P3 so it's officially on the backlog here in Bugzilla as well.

This may or may not be handled in the same solution as for persisting changes across page refresh in Bug 1468783
