Undo and redo

Undo and redo functions will undo and redo everything and anything you do in After Effects, not just the Penpal operations.

An edit in Penpal is a normal After Effects history item that can be undone. But if you click on After Effects' menu bar and Edit > Undo Modify shape you won't see the undo reflected in Penpal's canvas and you'll have to reload the path.

The Undo and Redo buttons in Penpal's footer bar will perform a standard undo and refresh the canvas, and so will the keyboard shortcuts:

  • On Windows: Undo is Ctrl + Z, Redo is Ctrl + Y - but these shortcuts only work repeatedly when Penpal is docked in your After Effects workspace.

  • On Mac: Undo is Alt + Z, Redo is Alt + Y and they work regardless of docking.
