Undo [webOS 2.0.1+] 7

This tip is only for devices running webOS 2.0.1 and higher

Although Undo has still not been added to the Application Edit dropdown menus since we originally reported on it, the ability to undo is available for anyone on webOS 2.0.1 or above that knows how to do a meta tap. By holding down the gesture area and pressing Z on the keyboard, you can undo a number of different text-related actions, such as typing (anywhere from one character to a whole paragraph or more), triggering autocorrect, pasting, deleting, etc., and it appears to work throughout most of the OS. So, no more accidently losing one of your memos or a well thought out email, because Undo is here and will even allow you to undo multiple sets of actions.

In case you're wondering, meta tap + y will not give you redo, as it does on a desktop computer. Hopefully that functionality will be added in the future.

Cool! Didn't know that!

I bet someone will complain about Sprint and their misfortune on this thread.. perhaps a name change of the site should be SprintCentral?

+1. I didn't know that either.

Yeah, I tested this with a tap+z to delete a word I typed. I then did a tap+y to redo but that rebooted my phone. Sweet.

Yeah meta+Y reboots my as well, what an odd feature?

I keep expecting to be able to multiply undo, but instead of backsteppingin undos it.. Acts weird. (repasting text strings unexpectedly.)
so maybe they haven't finished it yet, and so haven't added to the app menu due to that.

but this is completely valuable still! Too many times have I selected all, then tried to copy and ended up with a 'c' in place of all my txt.

yeah reboot on my 2.1 with meta+Y

Meta tap + y is working in webOS 2.0.1
