Post a screen recording on the help vault using cmd-z and cmd-shift-z.

Hello, I am having the same issue, impossible to redo even when I use the Edit/redo menu :frowning:

@boss94 Just like the last reply, did you check in the Help Vault? Does it work there? That is the first thing you need to check.

If it works in the Help Vault, but not your vault:

Check your hotkeys and make sure you didn’t remap Cmd-Shift-Z.

Try turning off community plugins and test if it is a plugin causing an issue.

Hi @rigmarole,

I am getting the same issue here. Reproduction steps as described by @troth, also on the Help Vault. You will find attached a screen recording of the issue. No community plugins installed. Both with hotkeys (hitting Cmd-Z and Cmd-Shift-Z) and through Edit > Undo/Redo.

This is quite limiting, and a pretty central feature for text editing software.

Screen Recording (1.2 MB)

Please let me know if you need any more info from me that could help get this fixed faster.

I’ve just tried to test and Ctrl-Z doesn’t even work for undo so I never reached Ctrl-Y. Tested on Help Vault.
In Live Preview.

When I switch to legacy editor, they work.

Looks like a bit of a killer for using Live Preview for me.

Ah. It’s because of Electron 17. I moved back to reverted 13.24 and it all works., so my issue was temporary and unrelated to others here.
