I would expect the words " in this case" to be marked as deleted. Instead " properly" is marked as deleted and inserted.

    That word was removed and inserted somewhere else in the sentence. Imo what highlight is perfectly fine. Or is there a reason why you would consider "in this case" to be more eligible for the highlight than "properly"? – Tom Sep 19 '17 at 11:56

    I can see "in this case" in both shots. How do you suggest highlighting a moved word (in this case "properly")? – Oded Sep 19 '17 at 11:56

    The editor changed works in this case properly to works properly in this case.You misunderstood the revision. Check stackoverflow.com/posts/46298491/revisions. – Suraj Rao Sep 19 '17 at 11:56

    I totally missed that the text was moved. Thanks. – Halcyon Sep 19 '17 at 12:32

It's a toss-up whether you move "in this case" or "properly". I think this is like the Duck-Rabbit Illusion.

Optical illusion of a duck facing left or a rabbit facing right

You're seeing the "rabbit" (in this case) and a lot of other folks are seeing the "duck" (properly). It's not actually a bug, just a different view of the same change.

  • right.. but OP seems to have seen half a rabbit."I would expect the words " in this case" to be marked as deleted" – Suraj Rao Sep 19 '17 at 12:07
  • @suraj I took that to mean 'I expected `in this case' to be red on the left side, not 'properly'" (although now I see the and part, I agree with you... regardless, it's just a misunderstanding) – ColleenV Sep 19 '17 at 12:09
