I drew a polygon and decided I didn't need it so I selected it and clicked the "X" to delete it. It deleted the "Container" containing many hours of work.

Is there an "Undo" function? (If there ins't please add one)

I saved about 30-45 minutes ago. Can I go back to that version if there is no "Undo"?

Thank you

Hi, there is no undo function currently. We will think about introducing this kind of function, but currently only solve for this issue is saving map frequently and reverting it in case of changes.

About restoring map - there is always possibility to restore maps from day before changes (backups are done on daily manner). Please provide link to the map and describe what dissappeared and I will see what I can do.

I exited without saving and then when I logged in again it loaded a version that was from the previous time so I lost only a few hours of work. And now I know to save often and create historical versions :-)

A suggestion: Because the "X" (Delete Container) is so destructive (if the "Main Container" is selected it deletes *everything*), can you add an "This will delete ALL the information in the selected container and cannot be undone. Are you sure?" step? This gives people a chance to stop and think if they have clicked in error.

I know that I should use "Remove" to delete individual items,but I was tired and distracted when I did it and if I can make that mistake then so can others. It causes no harm to create a pause in the process and may save a lot of lost work.

Thanks for suggestion - your improve idea will be introduced within one product cycle (1-2 weeks). System will ask to confirm deleting everything that is container and contains children.


Thanks for reporting.
