Too much undo (control+z) when aligning objects

Sometimes control+z undoes too many actions when I am working on aligning objects.  I suspect this is useful if you move a single object a bunch of times with the arrow key (and maybe is an intended feature of the undo function when aligning objects), but most of the time for me it moves the last handful of objects I moved to their previous locations.  That's not help.  Is there a way to prevent this?

 

Thanks!

Good Afternoon,

 

What version of LabVIEW are you using?

Greg,

 

When you perform an action such as align, LabView treats it as one command regardless of how many objects are moved.  So when you use Control+z after aligning objects, it undoes the last command, which was align, and the objects are returned to their previous position.  Hope this helps!

Hi Joe,

 

I didn't mean "align" as in one of the specific alignment function from the menu bar to be used on a group of objects.

 

For example, if I highlight an object and move it with the left arrow key 10 spaces, then I highlight a different object and move it in some other directions, using the shift+arrow key 5 times, and I continue this on any number of objects, all of the objects from all alignment operations, back to the last time I perform a completely different action such as creating an object, move back to their original locations when I press control+z one time.  I would rather just the last object I moved return to its previous locations.

 

Thanks,

Greg

Greg,

 

Ah, I see.  That sounds like it may be a bug issue.  I have verified that it is fixed in later versions (at least to LabView 8.6).
