    Where is the undo in creative mode? The selection tool has totally destroyed what I was trying to build by somehow modifying it in some weird and unexpected way instead of just selecting some blocks I wanted deleted, and I lost several hours of work.

    Now I don't feel like building anything or playing anymore.

    Press 'N' to open the build menu thing. Undo should be at the top.

    Lots of other useful features there such as symmetry which can really help speed up building.

    Oh there /is/ undo? I thought there wasn't any ... I didn't see that, but it's too late now because the undo information isn't being saved.

    How many steps does it go back when it's available?

    I've been able to go back about 10 or 12 steps at most, I think.

    If I try to go too many I usually end up with a "Continue or Quit" message. I always pick continue.

    Good to know, thanks! I guess when you know you may need more undo, you can first save and go back further. I should have done that ...
