Undo and Redo tabs[edit | edit source]

The first two tabs on the Visual Editor tool bar are the Undo and Redo arrows

UndoVE.jpg Undo arrow If you decided that you did not like your last edit, you can delete it with one click of the undo arrow rather than using the delete key. If there is more than one edit to delete, you can undo more than once. However, you cannot undo after you have saved your edits.
RedoVE.jpg Redo arrow If you decided that you really did like your last edit (or edits) after all, you can restore it by clicking the Redo arrow. You can redo more than once. However, you can not redo after you have saved your edit.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

  • Remember you cannot use these arrows after you have saved your entries.
