I just reviewed a suggested edit that consisted in nothing:

In https://spanish.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/12155:

enter image description here

we see no split view to distinguish the changes, like all suggested edits have. See one for example:

  • The comment says that "it's a translation request". As if they were to flag that question. Weird way to do this. Anyway, when I only type in a comment but do not change anything, the change "Save Edits" doesn't result into an error message but doesn't save it as a change, either. Though, I'm wondering what would happen if I make a change, save it, and then undo the change by hand (e.g. pasting the original text). As long as an edit is not approved/rejected, you can still edit that one. – Em1 Dec 20 '16 at 9:32
  • @Em1 exactly, I also did the test to edit without any change and the tooltip said Nothing appears to have changed. Could you test it so we can see if this is the case? – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Dec 20 '16 at 9:38
  • So, I've tried to fake-edit one of your posts and I also get that tooltip. I didn't get that tooltip when I made a fake-edit on the German sister site where I have enough reputation for edits. Just tried it again. The edit appears to be accepted and, though, no edit was saved. – Em1 Dec 20 '16 at 12:40
  • @Em1 thanks a lot. Note the user PERCE-NEIGE has reputation 101 in this site, so it would match your first attempt. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Dec 20 '16 at 12:44
  • One theory about that change, though. Certain changes aren't highlighted. For example, when you add or remove a line break that doesn't affect the post. (E.g. 5 line breaks in a row are rendered to a single line break.) This particular example, however, is not considered a change by the system. I tried to insert a couple of meaningless line breaks to a post of yours, and a tooltip tells me that I have to make more edits. With that being said, there might be some kind of negligible change that doesn't get rendered but is considered a real change by the system. – Em1 Dec 20 '16 at 12:44
  • I found a releavant discussion: Edit Review shows only comment and no changes to the post. It can be related t othe grace period, as you said, and also with some rebaking of ... and things like that. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Dec 20 '16 at 12:56
  • What happened is that a tag with an accent was suggested: traducción. Reported in Diff highlighting fails on tags with diacritics in suggested edits reviews – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Jul 6 '17 at 15:15
  • So, post it as an answer. The comment won't be read by anyone. – Em1 Jul 6 '17 at 20:13
  • @Em1 good point, I added an answer. Let's see if SE employees notice this and we get a solution. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Jul 14 '17 at 14:40

    @Em1 I see this was solved somewhere in the past. No news in Meta.SE about the solution, but it works. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Nov 18 '19 at 12:27

Somewhere in time this was resolved, so this works well now. See how the tag is highlighted in https://spanish.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/12155

enter image description here

As indicated in Diff highlighting fails on tags with diacritics in suggested edits reviews , this is a bug on edit suggestions affecting those tags that contain accents.

So in this case the tag was proposed to be added but no highlight was shown.

Let's see if it gets solved in any of the places where it has been reported.
