Description Vadiraj Deshpande 2007-04-17 19:40:34 UTC
The undo/redo support works in the default XML view, but does not work as
expected in a visual editor. Whenever we click 'undo' button on the toolbar with
the visual editor active, we need to switch to the XML view and come back to the
visual editor to see the undo action.
I guess this issue is due to not using the underlying top component's UndoRedo
feature in the visual editor.

Not sure whether there will be time to address this for 6.0, but I will see what can be done. Vadiraj, did you ever 
have time to look at this in details?
Comment 2 Vadiraj Deshpande 2007-10-05 11:03:39 UTC
Hi Erno, I haven't had a chance to look at this. I will be looking at it in next couple of weeks and hopefully come up
with the fix.

Has this been fixed yet?
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2009-10-08 15:22:52 UTC
This works for me now in the latest NB 6.8 build. E.g. in web.xml editor:
1. Go to Servlets tab and add a servlet
2. Press Undo
3. The servlet disappears. 

Similarly for other kinds of changes.
