Revision Feature vs. Revert and Undo

Can you add an "Undo" feature in case of OOPS moments? I like the idea of the Revisions feature to see what's been changed, However, the list of Revisions seems more painful when you can't select any of them later to reverse the change, if you later change your mind! :-(
Reverse/Revert and Undo might actually be better. Revert a Revision and Undo the last action taken.
Thanks!

Christina,

Thank you for your feature suggestion!

I think that you'll be happy to hear that Hexawise's revisions feature already comes with an "oops-proof" revert feature that is undoable as many times as you'd like to change your mind. It might be a little too hidden at the moment.

At any time you want to, you can select an earlier version of a Hexawise plan and revert to it. For example, if you were working on "Revision 22" of a given plan and then decide that you actually liked the way things were at "Revision 8" of a plan more, you could simply: 
  1. Click on "Revisions"
  2. Hover over the revision number
  3. Click on the icon/tooltip that appears to the left of the revision number (in this case, version 8)
  4. Clicking on that icon/tooltip would take you back to that moment in time when life was better, people spoke to one another with fewer smart phone interruptions, and your plan in Hexawise was not the pale shadow of its former self that it has sadly become (whose fault was that anyway?... Steve's perchance?)
Best of all, if you later decide that version 8 was not what you were looking for after all, you can then revert to any other version of the plan that exists (including the option to go back to the version you were just working on, a version prior to version 8, or even a version created after version 8).

Please let us know if you're able to use this feature successfully and/or if you have any questions.

And thanks again for your feedback. It sounds like me might put some thought into making this revert feature more self-explanatory.
