Description Nino 2012-02-24 02:34:42 UTC
Problem description: If you insert a page header and later try to revert your text changes, the undo history stops at the header changes and text changes from before are not reversible.

Steps to reproduce:
1. create new text document
2. insert some words of text 
3. create page header by clicking the "+" on hovering the sensible area and entering some words
4. continue writing text in page body area
5. repeatedly press undo button or CTRL+Z

Current behavior:
Undo steps end at header level, text changed or entered before are not revertable.

Expected behavior:
Undo steps continue until all changes of the session are reverted (or maybe change history length maximum is reached)

Not tested if it's a regression as no older versions available ATM

Platform:
Linux i686/RPM

It is not a bug because you are warned that the header deletion can't be undone.

Changed from Normal to enhancement, because it would be great if such style changes could be undone.

Best regards. JBF

The issue is that after inserting the header, you cant undo, so its a bug.
