Free Windows Notepad or Wordpad have a deeper, undo history. Multiple times, I have edited something and Writer could not go far enough back.

How long is the undo history, and could the developers, please make it more robust?

Let's compare comparable – MS Office and LibreOffice. MS Office stores 100 undo steps in memory. Increasing this value leads to extended use of random access memory (RAM) and possibly virtual memory. This slows down responsiveness of an application. LibreOffice allows you undo 100 steps by default. You can increase this value using main menu Tools>Options>LibreOffice>Memory>Number of steps. Max value is 1.000 (one thousand).

That "number of steps" option appears to be no longer available in current versions of LibreOffice.

Zauber, indeed it is missing, but you can change it going to Tools>Options>LibreOffice>Advanced>Advanced Options>org.libreoffice.Office.Common>Undo>Undo, double-click on it and change the value. Reference: http://www.trishtech.com/2017/01/how-...
