I've been experiencing this since the first time I used KM, to a point where I know that if I need to undo something I did, especially if I need multiple undo steps, I know it's going to be a drag.
A simple undo step can take like 3 seconds if it's a simple text I added and want to revert to the old version. If it was a bunch of text, it adds up and I'm just there looking at the screen, not really knowing where it is in the undo list. If we are talking about a complex thing like pasting multiple actions or something like that, it's painful, to say the least.
Anyone else experiences this?
If so, is there anything I can do to change this behavior? @peternlewis are you aware of this? If so, any plans on fixing it?
You can see that from the moment I press CMD+Z, I start typing and you can see how long it takes to actually add those characters.
Why is KM the only app that takes this long to Undo?
Even apps that I have to make music and even video editing, are instantaneous.
Why is KM different and what do you mean by "reload"?
I tried with a brand new macro with a simple Alert action, no extra editor windows open. Sure, it is faster than having a more complex macro and multi windows open, but it's still slow, compared to all the other apps I work with.
This is really the only app that behaves like this.
How would I do that?
I just noticed another weird behavior. Look at how the 2 groups "Global - Promo Videos" swap at one point when I hit CMD+Z
And how slow the undo is, with just an alert action
I would just expect that they don't change their position, randomly, just because I hit UNDO. Even if the Undo is not a real undo, it's a reload, I wonder why the groups suddenly change their position?
If you think it's normal behavior, let's move on with this. I just reported something weird happening. If it's "normal", then it's normal...
"I'm not sure how I can be any clearer than this"
I said this because of what you said, when you mentioned the size of the macro as a factor. If the macro only has an alert, instead of 50 actions, that would, in theory, make it behave like normal undo (kinda).
Well, if you can't, you can't.
