Bug #15832

Undo/Redo button doesn't work - and History view has bad usability now!

When editing records the Undo/Redo button which is a part of the panel of buttons for saving/closing a form etc. can usually be clicked and it will revert to previous state of record. Currently this links to the history module but stays there instead of reverting and redirecting back! This must be a bug Sebastian introduced during his re-wamp.
And talking about the history module: Its just fine with all those nice selectors, checkboxes etc. but there must be a simple, intuitive button like before which one can click to revert. I was desperately looking for a "commit" button somewhere after having selected, click etc on diverse buttons and seen nice previews of this and that - but the simple button was missing. We need that pencil with the arrow back in!

I agree that this feature should be re-added, so I'm rising the priority.

Undo (at least the in the "edit RTE field only" mode (in module Web>page) is still (4.3.3) broken. When you click it it simply does nothing.

Hi Sebastian,

can you take a look at this one, please? I think the undo/redo functionality was written by you, so maybe you have an idea how to fix it...

Greetings, Michael
