Is it possible to delete only one step in the middle of history (keeping all steps after it) without juggling with multiple files?

  • Why would you possibly need to do that??!! even if you could, the step before it would include that!! – Digital Lightcraft Sep 2 '15 at 8:36
  • You can work in PS in such a way that most of the actions are still alive (live effects, adjustment layers, vector masks etc.) But there are situations where you are not satisfied with some of clone stamp clicks, or brush strokes. And you realize that 15 minutes ( and few dozen of steps) later :) – Jazzigula Sep 2 '15 at 20:12

No, it's not possible to delete a step in your history without deleting all steps after it.

  • Thanks, at least now I know for sure that there is no such an option :) – Jazzigula Sep 2 '15 at 20:14
  • My pleasure. :) I've totally been there (Oh wait, I didn't want to add that effect, but I want to keep the scale transform!), but for most histories, all the steps are needed to get to the current state. It would be a total mess if users could delete intermediate actions. – Vicki Sep 2 '15 at 20:29

No, not possible. History only stores the list of steps, not its actions.

  • I know that this idea is actually more complicated that it looks at first glance, because some of the later steps could be dependable of the step which should be deleted. But I hoped that PS can delete only dependable steps or something... – Jazzigula Sep 2 '15 at 20:27
