what? no...
then we would not need the option... since you cannot work with scribus
without selecting an item...

i really think that what people expect is the undo to work globally:
undoing the latest thing they did, irrespective of the current item
the "item mode" (if i understand it correctly. see below) should be a
deliberate choice of fthe user)

i've tried to play a bit with the item mode and it seems to be partially
but i do not have yet the latest code compiled and i cannot say if the
behavior is the same in the the current trunk.

just one question: what is the  "item action mode" exactly supposed to
i cannot find it in the official documentation.
