Command: undo, redo



The undo and redo commands and corresponding Edit menu entries navigate a stack of actions from a limited set of commands (and toolbar icons that use those commands):

Up to 10 undo/redo actions are remembered. Other actions/commands cannot be undone, including surface, volume, set, label, and many others. In addition, after a selection change is undone, using select down or the keyboard down arrow to navigate the selection cascade may not work as expected, although undo/redo can still be used to navigate the previous selection states.

The same stack of actions can be undone/redone using the Edit menu or the keyboard shortcuts shown in that menu (platform-dependent). The Edit menu also shows the type of action that would be next undone, with entries grayed out when no actions are available to undo or redo.
