Trend Zoom - Undo
I need the ability to undo, revert time ranges or go back a step or steps when zooming in on data in a trend. Currently the only way to do this that I'm aware of is to start from scratch with your default time range at the bottom.
When in full screen mode (pop-up) for a trend the only option you have is to go back and from there you have to start from scratch again.
Being able to undo/revert time ranges would definitely increase the usability and make analyzing data more efficient.
In PI Vision 2019, it is now possible to undo zoom actions in the popup trend. Undo/redo buttons have been added, and the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Z will also work to undo.
For trends on PI Vision displays, Ctrl+Z will continue to work to undo zoom actions.

Those buttons are available in design mode, it would be nice to have them in view mode.
The cancel action is available with CTRL+Z but it would be more intuitive with buttons

Crtl+z only works on Vision Trends if the trend is NOT full screen. Ironic considering that the revert button only exists in the full screen trend view . . . there is no revert button for the main display. As well as the fact that the revert button does not technically do the same thing as in Processbook. Processbook revert takes the trend back to how it was originally created/saved. In Vision the revert button takes the trend back to how it looked when it was taken to full screen, which is not the same thing as how the trend/display was last saved.
These differences in functionality between commands/buttons in Processbook and Vision that have the same name does not assist in convincing Processbook users to migrate to Vision

I thought that Ctrl + Z did that, or no?
