Bug Report: Ctrl Z, Ctrl Y & Undo/Redo Icons do not work.

If you make a change to a form (eg move a text box, etc), Ctrl Z (undo) does not work. Nor does the icon on the menu bar. Same for Redo.

Hi DatabaseMX,

 

I guess that you are using PowerApps studio for Web. When I open an App on PowerApps Studio for web on IE and Edge, I find that the Redo and Undo button are grey and cannot be clicked, and when I move a Text box, Ctrl Z doesn’t work.

It looks like that this feature has not been supported yet on PowerApps Studio for Web. May I suggest you submit an idea at PowerApps Ideas Forum:
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

Have you downloaded PowerApps studio for Windows? The Redo and Undo button work well on PowerApps studio, and Ctrl Z also works when you want to undo a change. As a temporary workaround, please edit the App on PowerApps Studio on Windows.

 

Hope this works for you.

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Would it not be better for somebody on the PA team to collate these issues/bugs as they are not really 'ideas'?

There are numerous issues in the web studio / browser combinations with copy/cut/paste/undeo/redo, refreshing, timeouts and errors, etc.. None of them are 'ideas' are they? So what is the best way to help with these issues rather than clutter-up the 'ideas' forum?

 

Yes ... I just noticed a few minutes ago they do work in PowerApps Studio for Windows. My smaller laptop has Windows 10. However, my larger Dell laptop has Windows 7 - and I prefer to work on the large screen, with dual 24" monitors as well. However, I'm planning on upgrading the Win 7 machine to Win 10 Enterprise (like my smaller Dell laptop) this weekend. I will submit the suggestion.

 

Do you happen to know other main differences between the two versions? Or a link to a list?

 

The bad news is ... at work, where I'm already introducing Power Apps to a few people ... we are still on Windows 7. And no clue when IT plans to move to Windows 10 😞

Yes I totally agree. And I've been hit with a sudden "Your session has expired!" message ... and boom, you are essentially done. And this occurs when I am actively working, not idle. MADDENING !

Even the right-hand vertical scrollbar does not work (IE11 + Windows 8.1 + Surface PRO 2) when I click, I have to drag it or use 'touch' gestures. It does not seem correct to post fixing this as an 'idea'.

Hi DaveB,

 

Thanks for your feedback about the “Ideas Forum”. Please feel free submit your feedback at PowerApps Forum/Flow Forum, and we would collect and report all the related issues about bugs, and ideas, and any other requests from you.

 

About the issue Redo/Undo button control doesn’t work on PowerApps Studio for Web, I have reported it and hope there would be an update on this part soon.

Hi DatabaseMX,

 

Hope this article about “Compare Windows versions” could be a reference for you:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-sg/windows/compare

 

From this link we know that running PowerApps studio on Windows, OS Windows 8.1 or higher is required. So if you are using Win7, please update the OS to higher version:
