[Migrated] Selective undo of changes from diff window
Open, Needs TriagePublic


It would be very helpful to be able to select and undo any given change as shown in the diff window; this would be a big time saver over manually undoing a change, and would be less prone to manual error. (Thanks for great work!) @Dhollm 07:35, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

You can double-click any change in the diff window and it will be undone.

As long as you realize that that undoes all the changes in the paragraph.

Thanks, that's definitely helpful. Though, a more localized undo (ie, the exact change clicked on) would still be useful I think.

And as long as you realize that double-clicking on any change in the diff window (or making any change in the edit box) wipes out all the automated messages that get added to the edit summary (e.g. typo fixes, replacements, addition/removal of templates), which is a bummer.

Maybe it would be possible to allow line by line removal instead of having to remove the whole paragraph?

It ''is'' line by line, but in the code, one line usually contains the whole paragraph. Do you mean sentence by sentence?

Change by change removal would be wonderful, as even one sentence may have more than one change.

It doesn't just show the paragraph containing the diff. It also puts paragraphs either side that have no diff. These provide some context but use up a lot of space. Can these non-diff paragraphs be reduced in size?
Perhaps allow the user to specify?

It might also be helpful to have an "undo like" capability that would allow the user to deselect all changes like on an article..(for example if AWB suggested a bunch of typo changes the user could select the undo like option to uncheck all the top changes).
