Description Subfader 2012-04-11 14:52:41 UTC
Chrome 18.0.1025.152 m (all plugins deactivated for confirming)

* Edit a page
* Add text
* Mark some of it as bold with te editor toolbar
* Add more text
* Try to undo changes
> You can only undo until you made the text bold

This seems to be a Chrome only bug as it appears in an old MW 1.16a and trunk on

I set the importance to major since there is no solution to undo changes which can mean a user loses all edit changes.

Maybe an auto-saving to temp feature may be nice...

Edit: Appears on 1.16a Monobook and trunk Vector
Comment 2 Beau 2012-05-06 20:18:21 UTC
I assume the old toolbar is used. Similar to bug 31780 (about WikiEditor extension).
Comment 3 Subfader 2012-05-07 11:39:29 UTC
Tested and happens in old toolbar in Monobook 1.16 and in trunk Vector with new editor.

Independent from a dialog in your linked bug. As said, you can try with simple bold button.
