I bet you know how to undo my fat-fingered-command I keep accidentally executing

Hi there! First time poster here. I have twice in the last day lost a ton of work because I intended to use CTRL-Z to undo my last action, and instead am hitting something else. I don't know what the mode is or what key stroke I fired by mistake.

 

The action takes my work and converts it into a finer line mode and it's not the look I want and need. I don't know how to undo my last action. 

 

Pictures below  that include weird mode which is the damage. Working example is the look before I wrecked it.

 

Could you help me by:

1.) Explaining how to undo what I did 

2.) Tell me the feature I am executing so I understand what is happening

 

Thanks so much!

 

Signed,

head-to-desk 🙂

This is just the harmless and often useful Outline mode.

 

Just turn it off in the View menu and choose the Preview mode.

Hi Kurt! Yes, I can see how this could be useful. It was scaring the bejesus out of me when it was happening.

 

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate you!

Now you know the "what is".

 

Here is "where it could comes from":

Assumed you are not a native english speaker and you works under Windows OS.

 

Under Windows, [Shift] + [Alt] is the default setting for changing the keyboard language. Sometimes that happens unintentionally. If you are now using [Ctrl] + [Z] or [Ctrl] + [Z] with an English keyboard layout, you use [Ctrl] + [Y] instead - without knowing that you are doing this.

 

[Strg] + [Y] is the shortcut for Outline Mode.
