Filter undo and redo for editing

On the Quick Access toolbar, you can filter the undo stack to list only editing operations. On a filtered undo list, you can rollback a selected range of edits without undoing mapping operations such as toggling the visibility of a layer.

Caution:

You cannot undo edits made to nonversioned data in an enterprise geodatabase or to features on feature service layers. For these use cases, the undo stack only records nonediting operations such as changing a layer property or deleting a feature template.
