please report it to the bug tracker with steps which can be replicated
by the devs!

btw, why the hell are you linking to a copy of a fully layouted text
the error you describe should not happen, i agree!
but your workflow is at least a bit strange.l..

please report bug reports for features which are not implemented in the

however, it's not that strange that you can't undo a corruption... if
one happened.
personally, i don't know of any software which can do it!
and i know many software which are used in a corporate environment...

i had a look at the list of bug / feature requests you had submitted...

11 of 16 have been closed... and three of the open ones have been
submitted in the last two days... and one requests multi-touch gestures
which is certainly a long term request...

this looks like a rather good performance from the team!

you know if you have a project running for 10 years, there are some
chances that some requests get older and older: they can't be
implemented yet, but nobody dares to close them...

voilà... and since you are a programmer (at least i think you are
one...) you may think to contribute some fixes!

we badly need developers contributing mac specific code!
