Ah, that's at the top of my gripes list too. I'm pretty sure that  
Undo is even less functional in 6 than in 5.2.

Another shortcoming is the lack of AutoSave or AutoBackup capability.  
It's too easy to lose track of time, crash, and then discover that  
you haven't saved anything in 2 hours. (Or maybe its just dementia on  
my part.) I've created a little palette of my own with an AutoSave  
function that saves the InputNotebook[] every few minutes. That works  
pretty well, and if anyone would like to test it, let me know. I've  
made an attempt at an AutoBackup function, but I don't know how to  
make it sufficiently non-intrusive.
