I sure wish Medium had an undo button
First of all, I need you to know that I had a long reply almost written when who-knows-what…

Medium’s Undo (If you’re lucky)

Click the three dots at the top of the screen between Publish and the notification Bell.

Select Revision history. Oh look, that’s where they’re hiding “Hints and keyboard shortcuts”

This is my formal exit from a Medium rabbithole I just fell down into.

Thank you for reading this far. If you like what you read and would like others to find these brilliant articles too, click the recommend button.

If you are wildly enthused by these articles and would like to spread the word to an even wider audience, share on social media.

If, like me, you are a commitmentphobe but would like to support me in a kind of a noncommital way, browse my articles. It bumps my stats and I really like getting my stats bumped.
