The problem is that a change is done with two modifications, delete and add.
When I replace McDonald by Trump it adds two entries to the list of changes in
the sidebar. The same is true for MS Word where also both operations are shown
separately in the sidebar, and I can also accept the deletion but reject the
addition. (Deletion is visualized like a comment and the addition inline when
the sidebar with all changes is not open.)

Ideally we flag this as _override_ additionally to the pure add and delete.
When the user selects a word/paragraph and enters text the change is treated as
override and accept/reject are applied at once as expected in this ticket. When
the word is deleted first and the replacement added as a follow-up, these steps
are done separately and should be stored as such.

If this is not possible I'd rather keep the current behavior because a) it
works the same in other word processors, and b) it's safer to click twice.
