Is there a way to prevent Dreamweaver from undoing changes with linked files

When I am working with Dreamweaver and I may be including other files in my code. When I do a Ctrl-Z to undo something if I made changes in the linked files as well it will automatically undo changes in those other files as well in the order I did them. Is there a way to make Dreamweaver only undo changes in the file that I have currently open and not and linked files?

 

Hope that makes sense

I truly DESPISED this idiotic "feature" when it was added to DW.

Thankfully, after a number of complaints from a fair amount of people, Adobe created a setting...

Edit > Preferences > General > Limit Undo to the Active Document (make sure it's checked)

OMG, I really didn't think it had that feature. Dude, you are a lifesaver! It's so annoying
