Bug Description

Flight4, latest Evolution Update 2.5.92:

There is NO undo function in the Evolution Memo component. This is VERY annoying!

Imagine someone writes a big memo. Now he/she wants to copy and paste it into Gedit. He/she marks everything with "CTRL-A" and instead of "CTRL-C" just accidently presses "C"... Oh, oh...

Sorry, but we're in year 2006 and this simple memo editor has no undo... I think it's better to DROP the whole Memo component if there is NO undo function!

Upstream comment:

"Some work is progressing towards adding html support to cal/tasks/memo. Once
that is complete, it will have undo feature across above editors."

This will happen for Edgy.

I still have this issue in karmic. When I create new memo/task, write something and then press ctrl+z nothing happens. BTW is html support (mentioned in Daniel Holbach's comment on 2006-04-26) available in evolution in karmic?
