In addition to the Very best and credit best can we also have an ALT+R for recent high score. This is needed when we make a change to a protein and then run a long script which hits a high at some point but finishes with a lower score. This score may be viewable in autosaves but a hot key would be better and takes the place of the recent best on the old undo.

To clarify, was this functionality already available as a button (without a hotkey), or would this be a new functionality? If a new functionality, how are you thinking of the definition of "recent" in this context?

I'm not seeing the distinction against the "Restore Recent Best" functionality, which takes the definition of "recent" from a user specification.

1) My fault. I forgot to explain completely. When I make a change and then run a script I may want to take the high that the script reached on this later pass as opposed to what ever the script final yield is, if that final is lower or defaulted to Very Best, or Credit Best if it has a cut etc. . That's why I made the change; because I wanted to pursue a different path without making a new track. ( which is the alternative). If this was a new idea I wouldn't have asked for it. The reason I asked it that the UNDO menu in the old original, and probably selection interface, had this array of selections: Very Best; Credit Best; and Recent Best. You now have restored the Very and Credit, but there is no Recent Best. I hope this clarifies my feedback. Thanks moretti.

That's interesting. I see both "Restore Recent Best" and "Set Recent Best" buttons in the Undo menu on my machine (Shortcuts Ctrl-N and Ctrl-Shift-N, respectively.)

If you're not getting them, please let us know what Build ID you're running (Obtainable from the "Advanced" section of the "General Options" menu.), as well as the operating system and update group. If you could also attach a screenshot of your Undo menu, that would also help.

OK. I get what you're saying. I misunderstood the notice on the web site. My semility is apparently proceeding faster than I thought. I will try to either curtail my comments or try to be very carefully. Very sorry for wasting you time. REally.

Not a problem. I'm just glad that we didn't accidentally introduce (another) bug.
