Years ago I think I remember using some Word Processor in a kind of 'proof reading' mode.

I was able to insert text and mark text for deletion, change text and have it clear that it was changed or something - I think it even used different colours.

Now I need to do some more word processing, proofreading like that.

I've just started using Libre and its the first time I've done any word processing in, literally, decades.

I see there's an edit/track changes mode.

Would that be the only option and if not what better options do I have?

Yes, Edit/Track changes is what you are looking for. As you delete, it leaves the text but puts a line through it. Inserted text is colored. It will even track who did what changes. There's a toolbar just for record changes.

Do it on a sample document first so you understand how it works.

Excellent. Thank you. Sorry I didn't acknowledge at the time.
