It's inevitable that you want to undo something you did in Pro Tools. In fact, the Undo command may be your best friend, maybe behind the AutoSave feature. When you do almost anything in Pro Tools, you can undo it and this is particularly handy when you are editing. I am going to do a bunch of edits here real quick, just so we can take a look at undoing edits. I'm just going to move some stuff around, use the Trimmer tool, now that's fine. Cut out some stuff, delete. All right, so just done a bunch of edits.
Now you know this probably already, Command+Z Undo, Ctrl+Z for Windows. And you can repeat this as many times as you need to go back. Or what's even more handy is you can go to the Undo History window. So choose Window > Undo History and you will see all of the things that you have done and that you can undo. If you click on this line here and just drag you can undo everything. Same goes if you want to actually redo these. Click and drag down the list.
There is a few things that you can choose from the Undo History menu. You can Show Creation Times for when those edits happened, you can choose Undo All or you can Redo them all or you can Clear the Undo Queue, I'm not going to do that. So obviously, the Undo command is one of the most important commands in Pro Tools. Use the Undo shortcut or the Undo History window, when you need to rethink some of your last actions you performed in your session.
