Using Undo in the editor

 

Undo can reinsert any characters you delete, delete any characters you insert, replace any characters you overwrite, or move your cursor back to its prior position. You can undo multiple successive actions by choosing Undo repeatedly. This removes your changes by "stepping back" through your actions and reverting to their previous state.

 

To specify an undo limit:

 

1. Choose Edit->Properties, and click the General page.

2. In the Undo limit box, enter a number to represent the maximum number of undos you want.

 

Note: You can undo an editing change after you save only if you check the Undo after save check box on the General tab.

 

If you undo a block operation, your file appears as it was before you executed the block operation.

 

Note: The Undo command does not change an option setting that affects more than one window.

Choose Edit->Redo to reverse the effects of your most recent Undo. Redo has an effect only immediately after an Undo command.

When pasting into the editor window, the text is inserted at the current cursor position. You can also right-click in the editor and choose Paste from the context menu. You can paste the current contents of the clipboard as many times as you like until you cut or copy a new item onto the clipboard.
