Hi, I was attempting to copy a paragraph from a wiki section and as soon as I highlighted the paragraph, I accidentally deleted the data (typing too fast). Since the wiki updates in real time, the information was instantly gone with no way to retrieve it. I checked the SharePoint site but it's not in the recycle bin (since it wasn't a file, only a paragraph) and the wiki file in SharePoint had already updated with my deletion in a matter of seconds.  Is there any way to add an undo button for typing, even if it doesn't apply to deleting whole sections or pages?

Ctrl+z usually works. You should be able to rollback version history on the wiki page if you found it. Assuming other edits haven’t happened. You should also be able to open the old version and extract the information.

;) by the way, the Wiki thing in Teams needs to be improved...I still prefer to use OneNote

@Karen Jones I need this right now. Is the accidentally deleted text gone. Is there seriously no undo???

Hi @PhilP365 - ctrl+z should undo your deletion. I do recommend using OneNote instead of the Wiki as it supports search, can be opened outside of Teams, uses page versions, has a recycle bin and has a much wider set of features.

@Kelly E Kelly, my company doesn't use OneNote. I understand there may be posters here who need the basics, but I posted because Ctrl-Z (undo) did not work.

Hi! You can get deleted stuff back! Its a hidden SharePoint list and the deleted objects will get the attribute of “deleted” this can be set to No and will be back in the wiki again

Is this also true for sentences or paragraphs that are highlighted then deleted? That was my original issue when I posted this topic. I highlighted a paragraph in order to copy it, then accidentally hit the delete key instead of copying it due to typing too fast. At that point it actually hadn’t been copied, so I couldn’t paste it back. It was just deleted with no way to undo the action.

@adam deltinger Thanks, I tried that. It looked like it applies to restoring an entire deleted object rather than some lines of text within a wiki?

@Karen Jones Yes, this is my exact issue as well.
