Mathematica Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Mathematica. It's 100% free, no registration required.

As a new Mathematica user I have been grappling with many aspects of its powerful capabilities but am now beginning the find the front end very disappointing in a number of respects.

  • Lack of multiple level undo (yes, I've just signed the petition and posted in the Wolfram community site on this)
  • Global effect of "Replace All" in the "Find and Replace" dialog
  • Weak IDE-like debugging capabilities (I will investigate DebugTrace later; I know Workbench could help but I resent the current €120 cost for what I believe should probably be core capabilities)

(Rhetorical?) How do sophisticated and heavy users manage?

The specific immediate question however is: does anybody have a viable approach/solution/workaround to undo/redo for (limited scope) input cell edits?

I'm still amazed by what Mma can do, but what it can't do is becoming increasingly baffling.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@YvesKlett - I'll leave it to a mod to determine whether it's duplicate, but I looked at that answer too and was seeking other possibilities. I personally am not very keen on the versioning approach (though credit where it's due for anything that helps anyone). I'll post a separate question on replace all. –  Julian Moore Mar 17 '14 at 12:30
