How did I miss that! Is that somehow different than just quitting the IDE
without saving then opening it again?

The IDE Undo is a mystery to me.  Most of the time when I really need to
undo, it doesn't work, particularly when moving/deleting controls on a
card.  I've learned to save after almost any single change to a card layout
before making another change.
