Is there an Undo" button I cant find, if not, has there been any thought or consideration of adding an "Undo" button or feature?

    In the non-investment accounts, there is an "undo delete" on the right-click list, but I'm not to sure how long it is available.

    thanks. I think a general undo last action button across the all accounts would be useful.

    You can't add general Undo to an application after the fact. It has to be built in from the beginning. Every user action that changes data must push information about the change onto a global undo stack so that the action can be popped from the stack later to effect the undo. In other words, every single function that changes data must be modified to add undo functionality. That is way too big a job for a retrofit and essentially is equivalent to rewriting the application.
