Many people delete the shortcut because of this.Other than using your own backup you can't undo it.

It's 2019 and I just accidentally reverted to my last saved... I don't even know what shortcut I pressed. The moral of the story. Don't forget to save often.

I just lost a days work to a very expensive client on project due in 1 hour. Teeth clenched. [CAPS LOCK ON].

 

Firstly FIRE the bright spark who thought this short cut was a 'good idea'. How did this make past the drawing board and past a focus group? This is the most obvious blind spot to correct. 

 

4 YEARS AND NOBODY HAS BOTHERED TO FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I'm paying a monthly subsciption for this?? You must be kidding. Rage does not even begin to describe my emotion level. 

 

Customer servicestop making excuses & solve this problem ASAP. 

 

I am out of pocket a full days freelance salary. Figure out a solution, how are you going to fix this situation? This is what I am paying for.

Absolutely true. F12 is the new revert macro and it's right fvcking next to both the delete key and the backspace key on my keyboard. If I accidentally bump one of those, I lose hours worth of work. This is such a ridiculous feature that needs to be made A LOT harder to do by accident.

Woww that was annoying.. thankfully I didn't lose two hours worth of work but I was just about done with a revision for a project with multiple logo options. that was not fun and makes NO sense at all. I back things up through google drive, not dropbox... so I have to see if I can retrieve it that way...

The shortcut is no longer assigned to "Revert" in the current version (25.3.1). There is a clear warning when you start a Revert.

 

I'm not quite sure what else you would want.

Good to hear that the shortcut is no longer the default.

But for those who did no read the what's new (that is a joke) and have customized shortcuts nothing changed.

But skipping the warning has aways amazed me.

Is the file an aic (Cloud file) it is possible to see the log of versions incrimentally saved. The OP is from 2015 when there were no .aic files so I know it will not help the OP.

I believe that is only for cloud-saved documents.
