Control-z is the universal "undo" keyboard shortcut for PC's.

It doesn't work in the new Publisher when you apply a rotate left or right to a selected vector object.

Yes, you can effectively undo it by right clicking on the object and select reset rotation, or rotate in the opposite direction,

but Control-z should also work.

 

ALSO, PLEASE make the topics SEARCH-ABLE !  It is a waste of time looking through 15+ pages of posts to find your issue.

I believe Right-Click & Rotate Left or Right rotates the canvas not a "selected vector object"

Which is only affecting your view of the document. It also creates no entry in the History Panel, hence no need for an Undo

It is the same as zooming in or out on a document, there is no Undo command for that either  


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Actually, since rotate left or right only rotates the view of the document, it doesn't matter if you right-click on an object or not -- you can even right-click on an empty area & rotate left, right, or reset still works.

Thank you for the two replies.

I did see that the whole page rotates when I right click and chose a rotate command. That's why I wanted to undo that operation quickly with Ctrl-z.

I guess there are no commands for flip, or invert or rotate for an object.

I do know you can manually rotate a selected object with the mouse,  with or without fixed increments if you use the Ctrl key with the operation. Menu commands, or even buttons on the gui for flip, invert and rotate would be helpful. They exist in competitor's programs.Really handy.

In Affinity Designer & Affinity Publisher: Layer menu > Transform, or if it is not already there, add the Transform button group to the main toolbar.

In Affinity Photo: Arrange menu.
