Multiple Undo

Post by Zebo777 » Wed May 01, 2013 7:40 pm

When I select multiple events in the Month View and then apply an action, and then I want to undo the action, I have to press undo for each one of the selected items.

For example:
1) Select 8 events in the month view
2) Select Completed in the Edit menu => all 8 events are marked "Completed"
3) Select Edit/Undo.. => only one event is undone to uncompleted
You need to repeat step 3 another 7 times to undo the original action.

Is this intentional?
Is there a better way?

Hi Zebo777, thank you for the feedback. The behavior you're seeing is due to the way the Undo feature is designed in VueMinder, where each individual action can be undone. When you perform an action on multiple items, the code actually sees this as a bunch of individual actions, each of which gets added to an undo stack.

I'd need to redesign how the undo stack works in order to support undoing operations on multiple items at a time, which wouldn't be a trivial change. In any case, I've added this to my to-do list and will post a reply when it's completed.
