In Microsoft Project, both 2007 and 2010, we have multi level undo. One way this is used by many customers is for what-if work – change things around and see what affect this has on the schedule – then use multi-level undo to get back to the starting scenario. If you use it in this way then there is another feature of Project you should know about – and avoid: Auto-Save. The behavior of undo, auto-save and save is different in Project than other Microsoft applications. Project clears the undo buffer on save and this is one reason that auto-save is not turned on by default.. If you turn it on then you need to be aware that if the auto-save kicks in then you could lose the opportunity to undo changes. Some customers like this feature in other Office applications, and use a Group Policy to ensure this is set for all users – and all applications. This can catch users out who might want to use the multi-level undo as a what-if tool – and if so then you would not want to force this option down to your Project users. And before you ask – this isn’t a bug – it is just the way Project works.
Clearing the undo buffer after save is an absolutely horrible idea that is anti-pattern to the way undo works almost everywhere else. The person who developed that feature should be fired. The UX team that allowed this should also be fired.
also, it's probably not your fault Brian, but just a little venting.
No problem m, and Project does have a few more challenges when it comes to undo than some of the other Office applications. And I think firing is a bit harsh - I guess it was a trade of with other features, but glad we do have some level of undo (we came late to the game).
that is abhorrent, what a poor product
Click save instead of undo, lost everything. fukin pissed off
