I have been through Preferences and Customize but can see no button for Undo/redo.

Thank you

Undo/Redo are only available in the Viewer/Editor.

If that's where you were looking, try View | Customize | Tab:Toolbars and turn on the 'Edit' toolbar - that's whereyou should find them.

Thank you Daan,

I have found that, so as an experiment I rotated a picture of my grandaughter 90 to the right to see if I could undo it but the arrows remain firmly greyed out, what am I doing wrong?

My guess would be that you may have used File | Jpeg | Turn, which is a lossless operation that cannot be undone (the file is directly modified).

The regular Turn operations under Transform | Turn & Mirror are undoable (well, except if Undo has been turned off to save memory. In the viewer/editor, see View | Preferences | Tab:Editing | Disable Undo if that might be the case).
