I just nearly lost a whole lot of typing.


If it's keyboard-dependent, can you do it with a third-party keyboard, or only the screen keyboard?

Thanks again.

You can always shake your iPad a little to undo typing, (providing you have that option activated under Settings app> Accessibility> Shake to Undo).

Kind regards,

There is an UNDO typing button on the standard keyboard on iOS. How much that will help you just depends on what you've been doing (esp in a complex app like Scriv).

Could adding an undo option in Scrivener for iOS be a new feature?

Hi Repelstale,

iOS Scriv already has undo.

If you're on a small screen device like my iPhone 7, the undo arrow pops up automatically in upper left corner when editing a doc.

If on larger screen, like my iPad Air 2, when editing a doc the undo arrow is located on one of the rows at the screen bottom. Which one I don't recall, but it's either the Keyboard Row or the Shortcuts Row. You need to enable the row from Settings > General > Keyboard.

I’m just a customer.

I confirmed on my iPad, the undo arrow is on the Shortcuts row.
