I agree - WRI seem to have a blind spot about UNDO - nowadays, people just expect a multi-level UNDO as part of working on a computer. Notebooks are not quite like other documents, because they change programatically as well as by user editing, but I would not have thought it would be too hard to provide a multi-level UNDO that would at least operate between evaluations. Alternatively, UNDO could be restricted to cells of particular styles - ignoring output cells. David Bailey http://www.dbaileyconsultancy.co.uk
