Undo and Redo an Action (Web)

The undo feature allows you to reverse actions you made in a workspace in the reverse order that they were applied. If you complete an action that cannot be undone, after you complete that action you are not able to undo any actions that took place before it.

To undo an action in the Web client, do either of the following:

  • Click the :undo: (Undo) icon in bottom left corner of the workspace.
  • Press and hold the Ctrl Z (Windows) or Command Z (Mac) keys on your keyboard immediately after performing the action. To undo multiple recent actions, press and hold the key combination repeatedly.

Note: Undo is on a per-session, per-member basis and is not a global function. Separate members logged in to the same workspace have different undo histories.

You can also redo an action, which negates the action you have undone.

To redo an action, do either of the following:

  • Click the :redo: (Redo) icon in bottom left corner of the workspace.
  • Press and hold the Ctrl Y (Windows) or Command Y (Mac) keys on your keyboard immediately after undoing an action.

On the Web, you can undo and redo the following:

  • File uploads
  • Asset placement and repositioning
  • Notecard actions such as selecting the color of a notecard, adding text to a notecard, copying a notecard, deleting a notecard, etc.
  • URLs accessed through a browser in a workspace
  • Pen strokes and erasures, including those made on images and documents.
  • Canvas actions such as insertion, deletion, resizing, and moving, and canvas settings such as color and name. You can also undo copy and paste actions for content within canvases. Note that if you create a canvas and then add elements to it, you cannot undo the canvas creation.
  • Grid actions such as grid insertion, deletion, and moving, as well as grid content insertion and deletion. You can also undo copy and paste actions for content within Smart Grids. Note that if you create a Smart Grid and then add elements to it, you cannot undo the Smart Grid creation.
  • Shape actions such as adding, duplicating, resizing, and removing shapes. Also, shape settings such as colors, fills, line thicknesses, and line styles and types.

The following table shows which actions can and cannot be undone within the Web client.
