Feature Request: make undo more fine-grained

Reported by marzapower | May 27th, 2009 @ 09:46 PM

Try this:

  1. Open redcar
  2. Create a new file
  3. Type 'a' --> a
  4. Select 'a' and press '(' --> (a)
  5. Select '(a)' and press '[' --> [(a)]
  6. Select '[(a)]' and press '{' --> {[(a)]}
  7. Undo (Ctrl-Z) --> '' Expected: [(a)]

It seems like the undo is missing or not correctly registering some step. This occurs even for a bunch of other actions, mostly cut/paste/undo actions. I will provide you with examples as soon as I can replicate them.

    • Title changed from “The 'undo' command is missing steps” to “Feature Request: make undo more fine-grained”
    • Tag set to editview, feature, undo
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    Yes, this to do with how GtkSourceView (or maybe GtkTextView) works. It combines 'nearby' edits into a single 'action' and Redcar doesn't override that. Maybe it should. I have changed this to a feature request for that reason. Is that alright?

    However, there are more bugs related to undo and copy/paste and I would be very grateful if you were able to find some reproducible examples of those.

    We're closing bugs from the old GTK+ version. Please try out the JRuby Redcar!
