This is introduced by removing trailing spaces when saving an editor file, for which the complete text was replaced (clearing the undo-history). This should be fixed by changeset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/44f2d73df4b3

I can confirm this on Windows with dev Octave, I noticed at least some weeks ago.

Reproduced in dev version. In 5.2 it works correctly.

After modifying and saving a file using the GUI editor, "undo" icon is active (yellow color) but "Undo" action does not work. In particular:

  • If using Ctr+Z or pressing the "undo" icon, nothing happens.
  • If using Edit -> Undo, the "undo" icon changes to inactive (gray color) but file modifications are not reverted.
