I am using proofread package to correct a latex document (see the MWE and its output). When I delete text using \del{} command which spans more than a line in the output (PDF) it fails to start a new line (see the attached image). Thanks in advance for your help. Below is the MWE and its output:

    Baseline datasets are also rare, making trend gathering difficult.
\del{Increasingly, researchers are working with Inuit communities, 
which have a long oral history of species in the region.}

    In recent years, killer whales, or orcas, have also become more
frequent in a number, taking advantage of longer ice-free seasons. 
The whales, which feast on resident narwhal, have even started 
changing narwhal behaviour, according to a 2017 report by the 
Department of Fisheries and Oceans. (Report from The Guardian)

    It seems to fail to break lines no matter what document class one is using. – egreg Nov 6 '18 at 7:54

The problem here is that commands from the soul package may not be nested; the combined overstriking and highlighting in the \del command of the proofread package is therefore done by overstriked the text in a savebox and then highlight that box. However, this forces the text on a single line. I'll upload a new version with the overstriking removed:

  • Thank you very much for your reply. And it does fix the problem - although - deleted text with strikethrough looked much more appealing and intuitive. – R.U. May 29 at 19:58
