Need an UNDO button

Situations occur every now and then when you need an undo button. Such as when I am entering in readings, and hit the wrong key, or forget to hit the F4 key, then I am typing in an existing reading spot but it wiped out the existing reading for the new one to be typed on over it. But that was a mistake. It would be nice to hit an undo button to bring the old reading back, then I could hit my F4 for the new row with my new reading. There are other instances when in the information tab, I hit new and now it made a duplicate test station but I didn’t mean to for that test station. Now I have to use the delete which will still show the unnecessary duplicate I made by mistake. I know the is a filter for deleted but I like deleted to show for other situations and knowledge.  These are just a couple of situations for an UNDO button. The first example worse for losing a historical compliance reading that the commission can compare with their records and see a discrepancy if you fudge a reading back in after wiping it out accidently.

    I also have times where I type something and then I'm like CRAP I just typed that in the wrong place or on the wrong record.  I think in PCS 1.12 we will be able to use Change Tracking to find the previous value to fix it.

    Yes, with Change Tracking enabled then you could look up the previous value and re-enter. Would it help any of these situations to present the grid initially as read-only and then go into an edit mode for only the record that you double-click or in some other way enable for editing? This may benefit the grid load speed, as well.

    I like the freedom and efficiency of updating the grids the way they are so I wouldn't want to take any extra steps for editing.
