Undoing Mistakes with CMD+Z in Tower 4

There's a litte keyboard shortcut that makes life a lot easier - and now it's also available in Tower for Mac: CMD + Z. In our latest update, version 4.0, Tower allows you to undo many Git actions, simply by pressing CMD+Z.

The new Undo feature in Tower for Mac is currently available through our Beta Update channel. Feel free to jump on board and take it for a spin - or have a little patience until we roll it out to all users in a Stable Update.

Here are some of the many scenarios where you can use this:

  • Undo deleting a branch or tag
  • Undo merging two branches
  • Undo checking out a branch
  • Undo deleting files
  • Undo committing changes
  • Undo a rebase (or an interactive rebase)
  • Undo publishing a branch on a remote
  • Undo staging/unstaging changes
  • ...and much more!

Most of these workflows would require a series of complex commands on the CLI. Tower takes away this complexity by allowing you to use the same, simple and well-known keyboard shortcut in almost any situation.

Additionally, undo actions will be available via the macOS Notification Center: when you perform an action that can be undone in Tower, the notification will contain an "Undo" button.

🎉 Happy undoing! 🎉
