Could We Get An Undo Button?
Could we maybe get an undo button, twice over the past few days I have tried to copy and paste a long moc or comment, pressed ctrl a, then pressed another button and deleted ALL of it. You guys must know how frustrating that can be, and this would really help?

It is frustrating, I always prepare and save a big mocpage in a text file on my computer. I also have a copy of my homepages saved on my pc, just incase it would suddenly disappear.
Things like that happen, it's up to you to be prepared ;)

Many times when you delete the text, youcan usually just paste it back. You know how some people say "Cut and Paste?" It should still be able to be undone by pasting it back unless you've done a copy paste or delete right after your accidental deletion.

No I did ctrl A, so select all, then I went to hit the c key to copy, but I accidentally hit another one and deleted it all. Sebeus, that was my attempt at perparing, I was going to paste it into a word doc.

Then all you needed to do was left click, and at the top of the selections would be a undo, redo button.

In cases like that where only a single change has been made, your browser will probably provide you with a single-level undo via ctrl+z, or the right-click menu.

You probably hit x, which would cut, rather than copy, so you would still be able to paste it in a word document.

It's called "Ctrl Z" It literally IS an undo button.

With frustration comes loads of caution! I upload the pictures I want in chronological order, then I simply copypaste the pictures code line sets into an ordinary texting program. Then itīs simply a matter of adding the text in between each code line set then save. Doing it this way gives you the control you lack on the MOCpages uploading window where you might hit annoying commands or experiencing homepage glitches.

Your browser has an undo button for this. This has nothing to do with MOCpages.
