In this article, let’s go over how to undo on Notion and other helpful tips you can use to work efficiently on the platform. Aside from using the undo feature, you can copy items, view your page history, and hide the sidebar for more room on the page. In the following sections, I will explain these tools and tricks.
Undo on Notion
You can undo in Notion two ways: using the undo shortcut or finding the undo button in the settings. If you use a Mac, the easiest way to undo in Notion is using the “Command + Z” shortcut. The shortcut allows you to work efficiently and correct mistakes fast.
Alternatively, you can click the three-dot menu button in the top right corner. I find this way more time-consuming, but this option is there if you need to use it. After you click the button in the drop-down menu, select “Undo.”
Notion is a great platform for productivity and projects; you can also use it for planning and organizing information.
You can use Notion on your mobile device by downloading and logging into the app. After you perform an action, you can undo it by tapping the three-dot button in the top right corner. When you click the button, a menu list will appear where you can find and tap the “Undo” button.
Aside from using the undo feature in the menu, you can also change your font from this “Actions” list.
How to Copy in Notion
Copying in Notion is similar to other platforms, and you can use the “Command + C” shortcut on your Mac. Alternatively, you can right-click the text and paste it on Notion. Aside from copying in Notion, you can also duplicate a page.
When using blocks on the platform, you can copy links connected to the block. You can use this feature by righting-clicking a block and selecting “Copy link” in the menu.
How to Delete in Notion
If you want to quickly delete something in Notion, if you use a Mac, you can click the “Delete” button on your keyboard. Alternatively, if you right-click in Notion, you can select “Delete” in the menu.
When using the mobile app, you can delete a block by tapping it and selecting the delete icon on the right side of the toolbar. When you tap a text block, your mobile keyboard should appear on the screen with a toolbar above it.
If you have an image block in your project, you can tap the three-dot button in the top right corner of the picture. When you tap the button, an “Actions” menu will appear where you can select “Delete” to remove the image.
Find Page History in Notion
If you want to view a page’s history in Notion, you can do so by clicking the three-dot icon in the top right corner. On the menu, find and select “Page history.” If you use the free plan, you will be limited in viewing history. Notion has a “Plus Plan” that you can purchase to see more history.
The Notion app is helpful for on-the-go edits, and you can find your page history quickly in the project’s settings. Go to the page and tap the three-dot button in the top right corner. Scroll down and select “Page history” to view the history on your mobile device.
How to Hide Sidebar in Notion
When working on projects, you can hide the sidebar to have more viewable room on the platform. There are two ways you can hide the sidebar, which I will go over. The first way is using the shortcut “Command + \” to quickly hide the sidebar. If you want the sidebar to come back, you can do the shortcut again.
Alternatively, you can hover your mouse over your account name in the top right corner. Towards the right of your name, an arrow should appear that lets you hide the sidebar. Hiding the sidebar allows you to focus on the page or project.
When using Notion on your mobile device, you can click the arrow in the top left to view the menu while working on a page.
How to Change a Block in Notion
On the platform, you have the ability to change a block into a different kind of block. For example, you can turn a text block into a quote block. To do this, first find and right-click the block on the page. In the action menu, find and hover your mouse over the section labeled “Turn into.”
On the right side, you will see a list of block options that you can pick to change your current block type. For this tutorial, I picked the “Quote” block. By using this feature in Notion, I was able to turn a normal text block into a quote block.
You can use this feature to adjust or change certain blocks in your project quickly. Side Note: Did you know on Notion, you can change the size of a quote block? Right-click a quote block in your project and select “Quote size” at the bottom of the “Actions” menu.
You can also add columns to your page in Notion, which can be helpful with organizing blocks.
In the Notion app, tap a block to change settings or make an adjustment. The “Actions” menu is similar to the desktop version, located in a different spot. At the top of the keyboard, you should see a toolbar.
Scroll to the right of the toolbar and select the three-dot icon. The “Actions” menu should appear on the screen. Find the “Turn into” section and select it to view the other block types.
When you select a new block type, you should see it change on the page. You can also use the “Actions” menu to insert a new block below the current by selecting “Insert below.”
The undo function on Notion can make editing and creating products more efficient. If you insert a wrong block or want to change a new adjustment, you can quickly use the undo shortcut. Having the feature on the mobile app is great for those on-the-go edits before completing a project.
