Undo and Redo any Mekko Graphics chart-related functions. Mekko Graphics includes multiple Undo and Redo functionality. The Undo and Redo function is similar to the way it works in Microsoft Office. To undo the very last change made to your chart, click the Undo button. If the action was not the last action made to the chart, continue clicking Undo to incrementally step back to the original state before the unwanted change was made. Once an undo action has been taken, the redo button will become enabled.
