Chapter 1. Premiere Basics > Using the History Palette

Using the History Palette

If you’re familiar with Adobe’s other programs, you know that the History palette is like a super-undo, or a time machine. The History palette lists your recent actions, and each new action is added to the bottom of the list. By looking at the list, you can see exactly what you did—and exactly where you went wrong. Clicking an action negates all the subsequent actions listed below. You can even negate particular events in the list. When you resume editing, the undone actions are removed from the list, and history is rewritten.

To use the History palette:

In a grouped palette, click the History tab to make the History palette visible.

The palette lists the most recent actions, with the latest action at the bottom of the list (Figure 1.32).

Click the last action you want to retain (Figure 1.33).

Figure 1.33. Click an action in the list to return the project to the state it was in at that time.

Actions below the selected action become dimmed in the list. The project reverts to the state it was in at the time the selected action was taken. You can reselect different items.

If you are satisfied with your choice, resume other editing tasks.

The dimmed actions disappear (Figure 1.34), and subsequent actions are added to the list.
