Description eric.savary 2005-08-05 16:19:40 UTC
- with a text file on the Windows desktop
- D&D the file into an existing document
- its content is inserted as a linked section
-> this action cannot be undone.

I checked with 2.0 (1.9.m122) German version WIN XP: [680m122(Build8941)]: it's
exactly as reported: only for text-D&D as reported and only in writer there is
no undo for that insert.
I also checked with 1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)]: same problem,
no undo.

On Windows XP running OOo 2.1 I was able to reproduce the problem of not being
able to undo the action when the insert is linked. The problem appeared for all
text documents (such as created in OOo and notepad).
