Does Scrivener have a feature like Apple Pages Undo?

Where, if you make a mistake or accidentally erase a block of text, you can "Undo" that action.

Cmd-Z, as in all apps on Mac?

That's a thing? That would've saved me a lot of freaking problems had I known sooner.
Thanks

Also, if a Mac application has an Undo feature, it will almost certainly be on the Edit menu.

Just one more thing you’ll find useful. Every Mac app has the ability to search for a menu item.

It's on the Help Menu: if you type ‘undo’ into the search box, it will show you whether there is such a feature and if so where.

The feature is so useful that Scrivener's Windows team had to specially code it because Windows doesn’t have an equivalent...

HTH.
