Restore Master or a Branch to previous Commit

Restoring to a previous commit

With Abstract’s version control, you can revert a Project’s Master or your Branches to any previous Commit. Restoring a previous Commit returns the Master or your Branch to exactly how it looked at that point in time.

How to restore Master or a Branch to a previous Commit

Any Contributor can restore Master to a previous Commit. You can only restore Branches you own.

To restore Master or a Branch to a previous Commit:

1. Open the Abstract desktop app.
2. Select the Project you’d like to restore.
3. Select Master (to restore Master) or a Branch (to restore your Branch) from the left side pane.
4. Click the COMMITS tab at the top.
5. Select the Commit you’d like to restore to.
6. Click the clock icon in the top right.
7. Summarize why you’re restoring to this Commit.

This restore will be recorded in the Master or Branch History.

Tip: If you change your mind about restoring to a previous Commit, simply follow the instructions above to restore to a different Commit. Each Commit is a snapshot of the complete Project. You don’t lose any Commit History by restoring.
