What is Undo/Redo?

The Undo and Redo features allow you to easily correct mistakes, as well as free you to experiment with different routing and data mapping decisions. Undo reverses the last action you performed, and Redo undoes the last Undo action.

Depending on your computer's resources, MapPoint keeps track of up to ten of your last actions. You can reverse the actions you performed one action at a time, in reverse consecutive order.

Undo/Redo versus Back/Forward

The Back Back button and Forward Forward button buttons on the Navigation toolbar function very much like the Back and Forward buttons on your Internet browser. Whenever you change the map view by performing an action such as searching for a place, selecting an attraction, or zooming, MapPoint keeps track of the map views. You can return to the last map view by clicking Back. To return to the map view you had before clicking Back, click Forward.

The Undo Undo button and Redo Redo button buttons on the Standard toolbar are very different from the Back and Forward buttons in that they reverse actions you have performed.

Use Back and Forward if you want to change the map view, and use Undo and Redo if you want to reverse an action.

For example, if you have just added a new stop to your route and want to:

Change the map view without making changes to your route, click Back Back button.

Remove the last change you made to your route, click Undo Undo button.
