[Feature] Undo for the Editor

Post by *DärJohannes »

I am missing an Undo function in the TC editor.

Yesterday, I wrote a long text in Total Commander's editor and after finishing the text, when I wanted to copy and paste it to somewhere else, I accidentally chose "Paste" first (not copy) and thereby replaced the whole text by the contents of the clipboard.

An Undo function in Total Commander's editor would have been exactly what I needed to fix that mistake.

Simple Undo in Editor is implemented in latest TC betas, but currently only for Android 6 and newer (I don't know whether it is planned or even possible to add it for previous Android versions). So if you have a compatible Android device, you can try it with current TC4A 2.81 beta 10 (Google Play/APK)
Android 4.3.1 no root, kernel 08.09.2016; Vista Home Premium SP2 rus 32 bit
TC #149847 Personal licence

Cuz we're all in this together, We're here to make it right

It only support on Android 6 and newer because that's when Google added it to their edit control.

How can we activate this function? I don't find it and I'm on Androïd 7.1.

Thank you :D .

Ok, I've found it on another post :wink: .

- deleting text
and it can only undo a single step.

You need to open the edit box context menu to see it. On some devices, you get this by long tapping on a word. On others, it appears when you double tap. Then there will appear an arrow which points to the left and forms an arc (a bit like a rainbow in shape) as the first menu item. If it is missing, then undo is not available at the moment, or not supported.
