How to Redo in Adobe Illustrator
In Adobe Illustrator, Redo can only be performed after you have to Undo anything. Otherwise, the Redo doesn’t work. There are two ways to perform Redo in Illustrator. We will discuss both methods one by one.
1st Method: Redo by Short key
The easiest way to Redo is by using the shortcut keys from the keyboard.
All you need to do is press Shift+Ctrl+Z from the keyboard to Redo the task that has been Undo.
Step 1: We have created a circle using the Ellipse Tool.
Step 2: Fill the color inside the circle using the Properties > Appearance > Fill.
Step 3:We Undo the color in the Circle by pressing Ctrl+Z from the keyboard and the circle is now without any color as it was before.
But then we realize that the color that was filled inside the circle was the one we needed.
So now, instead of filling the color again into the Circle, Redo it by pressing Shift+Ctrl+Z from the keyboard.
As you can see in the image below the color appears again, as it was in the circle.
2nd Method: Redo by Edit menu
The second method to Redo is by using the Redo option available in the Edit menu.
Go to Edit > Redo.
As you press Redo the step you have Undo in the design will be Redo. You can go again to Edit > Redo to Redo again if needed.
Step 1: As we have drawn a square and then filled the color
Step 2: But then we fill another color in the square to match it with the other design.
Step 3: To check which color looks better, instead of creating another shape and filling color inside it, go to Edit > Undo.
Step 4: Then previously selected color will appear in the shape.
Step 5: To Redo go to Edit > Redo.
Now you can see the second swatch appeared again in the shape.
