Undo in a notecard undoes changes outside of notecard.

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I noticed something weird and potentially dangerous while working with Storyist.


If I'm in a notecard and I paste something in, that works just fine. Let's say I paste something in that I don't want. If I do Command-Z to undo this, the pasted item remains; however, I notice that other things get undone.


To reproduce this:

  • Add a new blank section to any chapter
  • Delete it
  • Go to Storyboard view
  • Open an existing notecard
  • Paste something in there
  • Press Command-Z

What I see is that the section I deleted in step 2 returns. Command-Shift-Z (redo) will make it disappear again, with still no activity in the notecard. Repeated Command-Z's seem to perform continued undos without the user really knowing what's going on.


I press Command-Z *a lot*, and it seems like this might be a bug that might cause users to potentially lose stuff without realizing it until it's too late.

Just thought I'd confirm this. I can reproduce it exactly and agree that it is a bit bizarre and has the potential to cause havoc.

Hi Kim and Jools,


Yes, index cards don't allow undo operations at the moment. The Undo command will undo the last undoable operation, which may not be what you expect.

Since you say at the moment, is there any plan to allow undo on note cards in the future?
