"Undo" and "Redo" buttons

The "Actions" area of the OE toolbar contains two buttons which can be used to "Undo" or "Redo" the last operations. These buttons work in a similar way as in popular word processing applications. The following screenshot shows the "Undo" button. It can be used to reverse the last operation and/or remove the last entry that was typed in. Keep clicking this button in order to reverse more than just the last operation.

  • COMMENT TO GOOGLE

    I THINK YOUR MENU BARis not good at all. There are no simple instructions . I want to instal an undo and redo button there plus copy cut paste etc. The instructions are far too complicated. I also cannot find my yahoo bt bar as everything that appears is from google. Please help. Otherwise you are impossible and I will tell my friends! Helen
    probably you will never get this as there is no place for an email answer from you

  • Undo Button

    I just spent an hour typing a lengthy and complicated email to a group of friends on Google Mail. At the bottom, I highlighted a two word piece I didn't want and backspaced, only to discover that the whole email disappeared! This is like going back to 1990 and having something crash...I have now stopped using Chrome and GMail, and I will not go back to them until this is resolved! Too bad the only option is Outlook...sad day.
