Simple Undo when retouching

Unread postby thealy » 21.02.2008 19:23

I would very much like to just do CTRL-Z (or whatever) to undo one brushstroke at a time when retouching. Perhaps being able to undo the last 10 at least in order.

Despite reading the instructions multiple time, I still manage to lose most or all of my retouching session efforts all too often.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hello Terry,

could you explain why the "undo/redo arrows" at the bottom are not working for you? How do you lose you retouching efforts?

We also added Ctrl-Y , Ctrl-Z shortcuts in the latest version as far as I remember. Does it work?

Dan, Lutz-

Thanks for your reply. I just upgraded to 4.40, having discovered I was still on 4.21 But I think I'm probably not explaining myself properly.

I process the set of 13 images, and when I'm done, the focus through the depth of field is fine. But I have halos around some of the parts. So I find the source image where this is correct and select "Copy Source". I select a brush size of 30 and hardness of 30, with edge sensitivity at 0. I make a series of brush strokes, say 3 for example, and then make a mistake on the 4th.

My intent is now to eliminate the 4th brush stroke, leaving the first 3 alone. Pressing Ctrl-Z causes a repaint, but no change. I try "Undo last retouching operation" (third arrow from left). Like Ctrl-Z, it repaints with no change. So I try "Undo last Brush" - and all 4 brush strokes disappear.

I'm probably doing something stupid, but I can't get it right. What am I doing wrong?

Hello Terry,

judging from the version numbers you might have posted in the wrong forum. You are using Helicon Focus ( and not Helicon Filter) I guess?
Sorry, I do not know anything about it's usage.

Terry,

You are right. Undo should delete the last "stroke" not the last "point of the stroke".

I will add this to our to-do list.

Thanks Dan - much appreciated. Sorry for not replying earlier - lost in email hell. But with "Flower Macro" season upon us, it will come in handy.
