Thank you for your request, Vince S.
However CTRL-Z does not do that for me, using Firefox on a laptop with Linux Ubuntu. What are your OS and browser, please?
Sorry! I am on Mac OS X, and I meant to say CMD-Z. It deletes all of the text in the current textbox and gives the previous one focus.
Thank you, Vince. I took the liberty to create a ticket (#103018) from your topic, so that it goes directly to tech staff.
You should receive an email notification with the link to the ticket.
The undo function (CTRL+Z or CMD+Z) works on whatever the last action you did in the editor.
If the last thing you did was create a new subtitle, then undo will do what you mentioned:
> It deletes all of the text in the current textbox and gives the previous one focus.
Here are some other examples:
If the last thing you did was...
- adjust some subtitle timing, then undo will change it back.
- delete all blank subtitles, then undo will put them back.
- split a subtitle in two, then undo will join them back together.
- edit text in a subtitle, then undo will delete just the text that you added.
Hope this helps!
