How can I undo in a Paper doc?

Level 6

Hi there - 

Is there a way to undo anything within a paper document? For instance, I deleted a paragraph inadvertendly, and rather than just press an 'undo' button and have it reappear, i have to go to "Doc History" and click through a number of backwards arrows to get to that particular change in the doc. There has to be an easier way. 

Thank you !

Hi Rebekah, depending on your OS, you could use the hotkey for Undo, which on Windows is Ctrl-Z, and that will undo the recent changes.
 
If you decide that undoing it was wrong, you can ‘redo’ what you wrote with Ctrl-Y.
 
For Mac OS, you use Command-Z to undo, and Shift+Command+Z to redo.
 
Hope this helps!
