I just did a test, undo/redo seems to work as expected when going through Page > Apply master page...

my test says:
undo works when i apply the master pages by 'page' → 'apply master page'.
but it doesn't work when it was applied by drag-and-drop in the 'arrange pages' window.
(scribus 1.7.0.svn-r25347 on mac os 13.2.1)

Just did a test in both 1.5.9.svn and trunk with drag-and-drop from "arrange pages" palette and undo also works in that case. Going through 'page' → 'apply master page' or drag-and-drop in the 'arrange pages' window call same function.

i did some further tests

- create a new master page with different margins than the current one
- apply the master page to the current page
- the margins get changed
- undo
- the margins do not revert to the ones from the original page

but, indeed, the link to the master page gets reset... (and items from the newly created master page are "removed" from the page)

btw, since i don't see any undo code in the part of code i'm working on (ScribusMainWindow::ApplyMasterPage()), i guess that if the bug described above indeed exists it can be fixed without producing any merge conflict in my code...

I found an issue after another tests: undo does not work like it should when a masterpage is applied to several pages at once: several undo steps are necessary to undo changes to all pages instead of one. But to fix this issue, i'll have to modify ScribusMainWindow::ApplyMasterPage().

i retested (with the same configuration) and undo works (with the exception of the margins).
imho the only difference to the test from saturday is a restart of the system.
sorry for the confusion…

yes, applying to multiple pages needs a transaction. i'm adding it to my patch (since i also need to take into account.

i had a look at the ScribusDoc::applyMasterPage() and it was not obvious to me, how to add the undo code for the margins: i guess you can already add that and then check if i did the transaction correctly when i submit a patch for ScribusMainWindow::ApplyMasterPage().

one further note from my side: undoing the master page should not apply the previous master page margins, but the margins that were actually defined for the specific page.
this behavior is different from what is already done for the guides and generally speaking the link to the current master page.
