Cannot be done: Keep editing history after file saving. please.

It's very inconvenient now that I can't just CTRL+Z after file saving to reverse changes :cry:

Not possible due to technical constraints as mentioned is a similar feature request.

The diff history will not be valid anymore after the underlying file is changed (i.e., saved). Also after saving the file is unlocked and any other program can change it, which would make any diff information invalid as well.

These constraints are necessary to allow for big file support (i.e., not keeping files in memory entirely).
