Hi, When I save a project to come back to later, I just save it as a PXM file. Upon re-opening the file, everything is preserved as when I saved, but UNDO is not available. Is there a way to preserve UNDO information? .I'm no pro, so UNDO is an important component of editing!

The undo history isn't baked into the file, but you could switch up your workflow to work more nondestructively — say, if you're applying some effects/adjustments/transformations to a layer, you could duplicate it before making the edits and you'll have both an original and an edited version in your document. Of course, that requires planning ahead a little bit, but once you get into the habit, it shouldn't be too difficult.
