screencast of the issue
Description of problem:
See the situation when going through the revisions in this document. I have a couple <ins>I</ins><del>We</del>. I jump to this couple and LO selects just "I" insertion. When I accept it, it jumps automatically to next revision behind it, so it effectively skips over the deletion of "We".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put cursor somewhere before the insertion/deletion couple
2. Jump to the next change
3. Accept change
see above, only the insertion is accepted and cursor jumps to the next pair, effectively skipping over the deletion.
Either LO should recognize the couple as one unit, and accept/reject it as whole, or at least when accepting just insertion/deletion, it should immediately select the member of the pair.

screencast of the current state
OK, the situation is certainly better and technically speaking this bug has been fixed, it is now possible to go through text and process revisions just with shortcut keys.
However, it would be even more convenient if LO was able to recognize insert/delete pairs and go through them as such.
