Everyone raves about Gboard and SwiftKey, but the standard Samsung keyboard on Galaxy devices is great on its own. It’s pre-loaded so you don’t need to do anything to get it, but at the same time it’s packed with features – even some that you might not know about.
CTRL + Z on Windows or CMD + Z on Mac is a central feature when you’re editing text – running this shortcut will always undo the last changes you made, and adding SHIFT to the mix will revert what you undone done. But while text tools on mobile devices are more cumbersome than on PC, Android doesn’t have a system-wide “Undo”
For this to work, you must be using One UI 2.1 (Android 10) or later and swipe typing cannot be enabled. To check your settings, open your keyboard and tap the gear icon to the right of the menu bar. Scroll down and select Swipe, Touch & Feedback, and make sure Keyboard Swipe Control is set to Cursor Control.
Now to Undo the last change you made to the text Swipe the keyboard from right to left with two fingers. You can swipe again to undo the change before that, and so on. Then, if necessary redo something you undid swipe from left to right with two fingers on the keyboard – it’s that simple!
