To undo back a couple of commands would be great!

Agreed.  Would love an 'undo' feature.

Until undo feature is implemented, here is what I do.

If you are happy with any changes you have made then save your work/upload to server before moving on.
If you have made mistake and want to go back then exit the program without saving/uploading to server and relaunch the software.
this will take you step back to before you made mistake.

@GRAFIXMEDIA,

True to a point. It will not take you a step back, but will revert back to when you last saved it. So if you make 1 change or 20 changes, ALL changes will be wiped out if you do not save between them. Make sure you save often if you are happy with current results.

Yes Criley you are right.

When ever I give advice I am assuming user knows basics and can figure these tiny details for themselves.

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

that's what I do too, GRAFIXMEDIA.   But that doesn't always work, especially if I've done A LOT of work without hitting save, then make a big error... if I exit out then, I have to re-do all the work.   For the most part I try to save frequently, but sometimes I forget.  An undo button would still be nice.  :)

Duplicating the campaign before making any changes helps too, so your live campaign is never affected.  Just make sure to delete unused duplicates to keep things nice and tidy.

Even if you are careful with saving frequently and as you change, Studio still crashes and this happens quite frequently for us. Undo feature would be very welcome, but also more stability.

Please be sure to use the Desktop Studio as it is more optimized over Web Studio.
