You’ve been working on a mesh or animation. After doing several hundred actions, you realize you have been going in the wrong direction. You hit Ctrl + Z a bunch of times, but it only takes you back 20-30 steps. All the work you did prior to the 20-30 steps is lost. This shouldn’t be the case anymore.
In this post, you will learn how to increase/decrease undo steps limit in Blender.
NB: Blender’s default undo steps limit is 32. As you increase undo steps limit, memory usage as well. A smaller number of undo steps conserve memory.
How to increase or decrease undo steps limit from Blender’s user preference settings
- Go to Edit > Preferences > System > Memory & Limits
- The default Undo Steps value is 32. Set Undo Steps value to your preference
- Leave Undo Memory Limit at 0 so the memory is unlimited
