RE: Is UNDO that limited in Mathematica3.0/Win95?
Yes you are right. and it is a pain. I wish Wolfram would add a text "trash" where all deleted text of a session would accumulate. There could be some option like only keeping text from input cells text cells, but not output cells. This would have saved me quite a few hours over the years. It became a bigger pain since I work a lot on a laptop where the delete key is not far from the backspace key.

Being a bit sloppy (or weary) on occasions, I often find myself using the menu selection "Edit|Undo" to recover from accidental editing errors when typing text into either input cells or text cells. However, it seems the Edit|Undo selection is not applicable to editing involving an entire cell. For example, if I accidentally delete a cell from the notebook by highlighting its bracket, then pressing the delete key, it seems to be gone forever. Am I correct, or have I messed something? Is there any way to recover a deleted cell? -- =========================================== L.
