I'm trying to make an action that will:

  • Crop the left half of the image
  • Save as a PDF
  • Undo the crop
  • Crop the right half of the image
  • Save as a PDF
  • Undo the crop
  • Go up one layer
  • Repeat for all layers

I'm just not sure you can "undo" the crop. Googling only leads me to a million tutorials on how to undo a whole action etc...

If there's another way to do what I'm trying to accomplish, I'm definitely open to new ideas


Yes. But it's not technically "Undo". It's a step back in history.

Start your action recording and use Edit > Step Backwards after a save.... it should record that.

The actual "Undo" menu item won't work and will be disabled.

  • This works, thanks. I was also able to do it by manually selecting the previous state in the History panel!
