That's okay. 8 is much better and much more deserving of your upgrade
Multiple undo is overrated. Because FM gives you control and stability,
because putting more than three graphics on a page doesn't scatter them
all over the place, because numbered lists don't renumber themselves
without asking, etc., you don't need multiple undo to fix problems
created automagically by the product. To test new stuff, just apply tags
or master pages as needed, no undo necessary. Besides, after four undos,
I have forgotten what I'm undoing and at least part of what I am undoing
is stuff I like. Revert to saved and one undo is fine. Multiple undo is
... a waste of memory.
