Undo Button?

Hello.  I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and there is no Undo button anywhere.  I went looking for it after I accidentally deleted all of the text I had spent a good amount of time typing previously!  I then typed into the original box my text was in "Text deleted "

I came to this forum and tried the Ctrl + Z function and it only seemed to work on the most recent edit.  So, it "Undid" the typed "Text deleted".  I selected Ctrl + Z again, and nothing showed up.  I tried it several times.

Any help please?

The Edit menu is where menus normally are. On the Mac, top line above everything else. On Windows, below the window title bar. Menus have become unfashionable, but the core functions are still there.

Ctrl+Z is a feature of MS Windows.

Undo is on the Edit menu. That's the standard place. Buttons are optional.

Where is the Edit menu? I see Edit on the Toolbar, but it is not there. I see "Edit PDF," but undo is not an option.

I agree - you click on "Edit" but there is no "undo".  Adobe could make this much, much easier with say an undo reverse arrow or such.

PLEASE Adobe would you just make an "undo" button so it is front and center?  I click on Edit...but there is no "undo" anywhere I can find.

It's the first item under the Edit menu. Do you not see it there? If not, what application are you using, including the exact version number, and on what OS?

If you go to the line / ribbon / whatever they call it -- where the print icon is and right click, you will get a drop down menu with several options. Go to "SHOW EDIT TOOLS" which includes "undo" and "redo".  Spent forever trying to figure this out! and I've used Adobe for YEARS.  Shouldn't be this freaking hard.

Amazing!!!  All these "experts" including so-called Most Valuable Participants and Community Professionals respond to a question about the Undo Button with answers about the Menu.  Completely different things.  The only useful answer (i.e., talking about Buttons) is by someone who is 'New Here' (mkmarl01).

I think the point here is that people seem to be looking for an undo button but don't know that there is an undo menu. Which, despite what you say, does exactly the same thing. What's the big deal about clicking on a menu? Is it really so uncool these days?

Where is the undo menu? Why does Adobe hide it, or make it difficult to
find?

This was already shown in a screen shot. Here it is again

If your screen doesn't have the Acrobat icon in the window bar, and the File, Edit, View, Window, Help menus, then you presumably aren't using Acrobat Reader DC, and the answers weren't applicable to you. If you believe you ARE using this, trade a screen shot.
