Edit menu

Menu icon Undo §
PDXpert has extensive undo capabilities. In general, you can undo all edits made to an item in reverse sequence to how they were originally added. Saving your edits clears that item's undo list.
Menu icon Redo §
If you've undone several steps, you may decide you've gone "too far back". Redo lets you restore any steps that were accidentally undone.
Menu icon Cut §
This command copies the selected data to the system Clipboard, and then deletes the selected data.
Menu icon Copy §
This command copies the selected data to the system Clipboard. The source data remains unmodified.
Menu icon Paste §
This command copies the system Clipboard's contents to the selected control or list.
Menu icon Delete §
This command deletes the selected text.
Menu icon Select All §
Where more than one object can be selected, this selects all objects.
Menu icon Revert to Last Saved §
Undoes all changes that have been made to the selected item since the last time it was saved, and clears its undo list.
Menu icon Refresh §

An item's data is copied from the database when the item is first opened. If other users make changes to the record, your open copy may become out of date. To obtain a fresh copy of the selected record's data, you can close and then re-open the record or use the Refresh command.

The command only refreshes data on the selected object, including "child" relationships like the BOM, Sources and References lists. It doesn't refresh "parent" relations as shown on the Appears On lists.

Menu icon Lock Object, Menu icon Unlock Object §
If you have permissions to modify the current object, this unlocks the form. When you lock the form, your modifications are saved.
When you're the trustee of, or on the product team for, an unreleased document, part or change then the attributes that you can edit are immediately available. However, if the item is released or canceled, you can only modify the product team attributes after you unlock the item.
Menu icon Snapshot Duplicate... §
In most product management environments, often a new item is quite similar to another existing item. You can take a "snapshot" (exact copy) of the displayed item iteration, and then add the new item's unique data. This command (1) creates a new blank item of the same class and type, and (2) copies much of the source item's data (including BOM, source, reference and custom attribute values) into the new item. The copied value of Lifecycle phase controls whether the new item's Revision starts with its Initial revision sequence or Subsequent revision sequence value.
Menu icon Snapshot Convert... §
Similar to the Snapshot Duplicate command, you can make a copy of the displayed item iteration, and then add the new item's unique data. Before the item is created, you can select any existing part or document type from a pop-up window, and the source item's transferrable data is copied to the target item. Since part and document attributes can be quite different, some starting values may be substituted in the new item.
