View Tool Number Being Undone

I think the undo/redo capabilities in Alteryx could be greatly improved. Here is an idea that I think would be beneficial... 


I'd like to see which exact tools are affected by my undo/redo actions. An idea was suggested a couple years ago to move your location on the canvas, but that was not added to the roadmap. Instead, is it possible to add the tool ID to the undo menu so that it is obvious which tool each line is detailing?


This is the current debug menu that shows your previous actions:



When a tool is created, the ID can be displayed in this menu, but this is not shown when a change is made to an existing tool. My suggestion is that the menu would say:

4. Change Sort (3) Properties


This same change should be made in the Edit dropdown menu.
