i agree with you.

but i still feel better when the undo shows me what
it's doing...

as you know i belong to the popup religion.

i believe in the painful death on the cross of the almighty popup.
after three days it rocketed up the sky to its father, freeing us
from the death sin.

we're not allowed to spell its name until the end of times.

but the apocalypse is getting closer: we're all waiting for the day,
when it comes back to us and everything will popup out of the ground and
ask for the final confirmation.

libreoffice write shows the empty place where the frame was.
if you undo/redo a few times you will have a nice handmade animation
showing what has been removed.
