Do you get a Losing Undo warning after Step 5? If so, we are on the same page, and the fix will be coming in the next build.

I did. I probably just automatically dismissed it (or possibly had it suppressed).

Which raises a question: is it really necessary to lose the undo buffer for something that is essentially a navigation change?

Yes. Perfection is expensive. However, a tweak will make this message less frequent.

I know, and that's why I've been a loyal paying customer since 2004 (even when I was getting a competitor's product for free from my employer)

I just found an old email about ExamDiff from 2002.
Bloody hell, I've been using ExamDiff (first free, then pro) for 20 years!

And I am happy to give it!

Do you think I can get an "honorary QA" badge? :D
