   Step-by-step instructions

1 . Before using this tool:

1a : You need to have made one or more changes you can undo to your current drawing before you can Undo .

Tip: Look at the Edit menu. If Undo is disabled (grayed out), then you have not made any changes to your drawing that can be undone. If Undo is enabled, the operation that can be undone is noted on the Edit menu. For example, it might say Undo: Move .

2 . Invoke Undo using any one (1) of the following methods in the Drawing Editor :

Method 1 : Click the Undo icon. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Edit ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning).

Method 2 : If " Drawing Editor layout style " is ' Classic ', you can use the menu system to choose Edit > Undo .

Method 3, 4 or 5 : Undo can also be invoked using a keyboard shortcut , the context menu , or a mode . For the ' Lightning ' layout style, configuration of the interface is done using Customize Interface .

Method 6 : In Select Items Mode , right-click ( Menu ) and choose " Undo " on the context menu .

3 . The most-recent change that can be undone is undone.

Alternative 1 : Repeat step 2 to undo the next-most-recent change that can be undone.

Alternative 2 : Do something else. Note: If you do another change that can be undone , then you cannot Redo this change.

   Actions that clear the Undo history :

  • Open another drawing or Open Next Drawing or Open Previous Drawing from your current drawing. When your old drawing closes, the new Undo history applies to the new drawing that is opened.
  • Save a sheet after performing an operation that changes the composition of a sheet. For example, Save ( Ctrl + s ) after Sheet Item Add or Sheet Item Erase or Sheet Item Erase All clears the Undo history. But if you perform an Sheet Item Edit , you can Undo your edit changes even after you Save .
  • Definition: The Undo history is the complete list of undoable actions that the Drawing Editor maintains when you are working in a drawing. The most recent item added to the history is the action that Undo will undo.
