UNDO not working

I'm having a few issues in assembly with UNDO being greyed out. I've just mistakenly deleted a part from the assy realised the error went to press undo and its greyed out! I'm also seeing this in the part environment. EG I moved a part across to sync and tried undo this change only to see the button greyed out again and unusable.

Graham,

if you've saved the document at any time all your previous moves will be saved with it and the ability to undo will be gone and the button will be greyed out.  Is it possible this has happened?

Hi Frank

 

I understand that regarding the Save but I can assure you that I hadn't hit the save button. The part was deleted (mistakingly) and I went to hit the undo straight away but it greyed out. It also did this in the part environment whilst we were doing an online demo and converted a part to syncronous,  again the undo feature failed when we went to change it back to a normal part; witnessed this time Smiley Happy

is autosave set to on in Options? I know it's a long shot but this did cause me problems at one time.

We need to request that Autosave and Undo don't interact. Only manual saves should eliminates the undo availability.

If you use Autosave there are two main options. From what I remember:

 

Ticking 'Saving all documents every X minutes' WILL delete the UNDO steps.

 

Ticking 'Creating uniquely named backup copies of unsaved documents every X minutes' WON'T delete the UNDO steps.

A save is a save, it doesn't make a difference if it's automatic or manual. The same processing that clears the Undo stack occurs in both since it is the same process. As pointed out, the option to save as a unique document would be the route to go if you want to use Autosave without interacting with Undo.
