Multi-user Undo

Previously, the undo operation was not possible when multiple people were collaborating on a document at the same time, or at least didn't work after another user made an edit. We're working to improve this, and in this first update for undo, each user's operations have their own unique record, and will be able to undo your changes despite other member's edits within your document.


This is still work in progress and so limited for the time being. There are many operations that may prevent undo from working, such as adding pages for example. Simple operations such as editing text or images can be undone.


Vertical Smart Duplication

Similar to the Smart Duplication that was released in the previous update, we've improved this to now work vertically as well as horizontally. Select an object and you should see the duplicate icon appear at the bottom.
