Toggle Undo

Or maybe "Twiddle Undo". I realize that I use this, on average, around 2,396 times a day. I figure it might save you time, too; for me it's muscle memory, a part of typing, so here goes..

In my text editor (currently EditPlus), I have a macro which performs one, or rather two functions.

1. Undo the last thing I did (Ctrl+Z, right!)
2. Redo the last thing I undid (that is a word! You may not have a keyboard shortcut for this.)

If not immediately apparent, this moves your cursor/caret to "the last thing I did".

We write code, we debug and examine other parts of the code; any documents; we write more code; usually right where we left off. I use Ctrl+\ as my HotKey for this macro. I'm hitting that all day!

If your text editor/IDE doesn't do stuff like this, switch editors.

for now..

Welcome to corz.org!

Since switching hosts (I hope you are alright, Ed! Wherever you are …) quite a few things seems to be wonky.

Juggling two energetic boys (of very different ages) on Coronavirus lockdown, I'm unlikely to have them all fixed any time soon. Mail me! to prioritise!
