[Chimera-users] Will ChimeraX be built with a universal undo?

Hi Oliver,

  We would like to have undo in ChimeraX.  I envision being able to undo the things you most commonly want to undo: color change, selection change, moving one model relative to another, maybe molecule style change (ribbon, sticks, which residues), maybe show/hide changes.  These will be accessible from a standard single Undo menu entry which will tell you the most recent action which would be undone.  But undo won’t undo everything.  I don’t think we will undo deleting atoms or molecules, adding hydrogens, basically creating and deleting things.  None of this undo is in ChimeraX yet.  I would be happy to hear if there are more common undo cases.  I will likely add them one-by-one so knowing the most important ones is helpful if you have suggestions for that.

Or if not what are the devs thoughts on this - I know it is a complicated issue, but the capacity to backtrack after making a color change, deleting a selection, etc, would be very very welcome.
