Undoing Changes

You can undo every type of action you perform in your projects, sequences, and clips, as well as redo actions that you have undone. FCP can store up to 99 actions across multiple projects—you set the number of undos on the General tab of the User Preferences window.

To undo the last action

  • Choose Edit > Undo (Figure 4.20); or press Command-Z.

FCP Protocol: Undoing Changes in Multiple Projects

FCP's Undo feature can track up to 99 changes across multiple projects, but it makes no distinction between projects.

If you are working with more than one sequence or project, check to be sure that you are in the correct one when you choose Undo. Even so, the change you undo may not occur in the current project, so take care when undoing multiple changes.
