Zoom Undo

747 Views, 16 Replies

is there a way to not include zoom features in the undo command.

 

for instance, if i delete something and than zoom out, i have to undo multiple times to complete the undo delete.

 

I want to completely eliminate zoom featues from the undo command.

AutoCAD will combine Zoom and Pan into one operation, but it will not eliminate Zooms and Pans from Undo list.

Right now, there is unfortunately  no options to do that (neither with existing AutoCAD API), sorry.
But thanks for the suggestion, I will take note as a wish.

Old-school tip: if you want to undo the last "delete" operation, staying in the same zoom factor, you can issue the command _OOPS

If you want to take it a step further. I would be great if you could select individual items from the Undo list. Then you could undo a command 5 steps back without affecting what was done in between. Of course there would be limitation. If you copied and object then rotated the copy. You couldn't undo the copy without losing the rotated object.

 

I understand this might be complicated. From what I understand of the Undo command, it just steps back to a previous point in the drawing database. Skipping steps in between, even Zooms, would require adding or deleting sections of the database. Not just a simple reversion to a previous point.

It's far from the "stupidest thing ever". There are far stupider things that can happen in AutoCAD :smileyhappy:

No it is the stupiest thing ever.  The fact that Undo (one of the most basic of commands) is now not working properly.  Why on earth are they messing with Undo.  There are so many other pressing issues.  It is not fixed in 2014 either.  I just tested it.  This is bs.  It needs fixed pronto.

As I understand it, the new Undo glitch introduced in 2013 is far, far stupider than the issue the OP had with Undo back in 2011.


Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.

That is true I noticed after I posted that this was a 2011 issue.
