Undo and Redo are core functionalities we use without a second thought. It’s part of the reason we can model without a care in the world, right? We can always undo whatever potential mistake we might make. Even the most basic, fundamental and core functions can be improved. In SOLIDWORKS 2020, Undo and Redo have been improved, but you might not have noticed yet if you haven’t really needed it.

Undo and Redo Functions in SOLIDWORKS 2020
So, what’s different with SOLIDWORKS 2020? The Redo function has been greatly enhanced to allow you to redo even if you leave a sketch. Did you even know that previously this wasn’t part of the functionality? If not, I bet it’s because you’ve never gotten a bit carried away with the tool and needed to repeat an undo that brought you outside of a sketch. Let me explain what I mean.
Imagine that you’re editing a sketch, drawing line after line. It’s a rather tedious process to get a complicated sketch just right. You’ve tweaked your splines multiple times to get it looking just right, but you notice you need to undo a few constraints. You press Undo one too many times because you’re listening to music and not completely paying attention to how many times you hit CTRL + Z. Bam! You exited the sketch. No big deal you think, right? You can just redo the undo and get back to where you wanted to be. Until SOLIDWORKS 2020 this was not possible. You were out of luck if you accidentally undid out of a sketch.
This is a very welcomed addition to a core functionality. Like I said, you won’t even notice this enhancement, but you’ll be glad to have it there because core functions like Undo and Redo have been the real MVP of modeling productivity in SOLIDWORKS for many years. It just got even better with SOLIDWORKS 2020.
