Follow these easy steps to undo any changes in Premiere Pro.
- If you want to undo the most recent change, select Edit > Undo. This will help you undo up to 35 recent changes you made to your clip.
- To undo all the changes that you made on the clip, select File > Revert.
- To undo all the changes you made since you opened the draft clip, go to the history panel and delete them from there.
- If you want to undo changes you made before the last time you saved the draft, open the previous version of the draft in the auto-save folder then select File > Save As. This will save in a different location and not the auto-save folder.
- You may also want to stop a change that Premiere Pro is processing in the background. Do this by pressing Esc.

All the changes that you are making on your video clip are recorded in the history panel.
The command and the tool you used during the edits will appear in the history panel together with the identifying icon.
However, it will only record changes made during the current editing session. Moreover, it does not list individual changes in some panels and not program-wide changes such as preference settings.
This is because these changes are not in the draft video. Also, if you close and reopen a project you were working on, the previous changes will no longer be in the history panel.
The oldest edit you made will appear at the top of the list while the most recent will be at the bottom.
Here are some guidelines that will assist you to navigate the history panel of Adobe Premiere Pro.
- Select Window > History to launch the history panel.
- To select any change on the history panel, click it.
- If you want to delete any selected image, click it then click ok.
