Pls consider re-opening this. It is 2nd in search results in DuckDuckGo today. The question is relevant to any future version of Writer, and the answer worked perfectly for me in LibreOffice 5.

Go to the Edit menu and select Changes. Lots of options in there. Generally you probably want to select Show and Record.

Options for how the changes are displayed are found in Tools / Options / Libreoffice Writer / Changes.

My experience indicates that the changes made in Libreoffice are properly kept when saving as a .docx file. However the fidelity suffers a little when the document is opened in MS Word 2007 - some of the paragraph spacing is a little mis-formatted.
