Mostly, you need to understand how Undo works in the Echoplex in order to
use it to its fullest. It is a powerful feature with several options. Once
you understand it a little better, you will find it is not difficult to use
at all. Just practice it a bit, experiment some, and you will have it. But
if you have not yet learned about such things as the differences between
short-press Undo and long-press Undo, and how the memory is used, you may
find it a little confusing.
Undo is explained reasonably in the Echoplex manual, I encourage you to
read the manual section called "Undo".
Also, this was discussed on the list just last week, you may wish to reread
and a quick mailing list archive search reveals many more informative
there were many many many others. The list archive are an enormous
resource. Answers to so many questions are there, you just need to look. So
