What is revert to original in Loom?

Revert to Original in Loom is a feature that allows users to undo any changes they've made to a video and return it to its original state. This can be particularly useful if a user has made edits or annotations to a video that they're not happy with, or if they simply want to start over with the original footage.

To use this feature, users need to go to the video settings and select 'Revert to Original'. This will remove all edits and annotations, and the video will be restored to the state it was in when it was first recorded. It's important to note that this action is irreversible, so users should be sure they want to discard their changes before proceeding.

How do I revert to the original settings in Loom?

To revert to the original settings in Loom, you will need to navigate to the settings or preferences section of the application. This is typically found in the top right corner of the screen or within a menu option. Once you're in the settings or preferences section, look for an option that says "Reset" or "Restore Default Settings". Clicking on this option should revert all of your settings back to their original state.

However, please note that the exact process may vary slightly depending on the version of Loom you are using and whether you are using the desktop application or the web version. If you can't find the option to reset your settings, it may be helpful to consult Loom's help center or reach out to their customer support for further assistance.

Is it possible to undo changes in Loom?

Yes, it is possible to undo changes in Loom. Loom provides an option to delete or edit videos after they have been recorded. If you've made a mistake or want to change something in your video, you can use the "Trim" feature to remove unwanted parts of your video. However, it's important to note that once a video is trimmed, the removed sections cannot be recovered.

Additionally, if you've shared a video and then decide to delete it, the link to the video will no longer work. Therefore, it's recommended to carefully review your video before sharing. While Loom allows for some changes and edits post-recording, it does not have a comprehensive "undo" feature like some other software.

How can I restore the original version of my video in Loom?

To restore the original version of your video in Loom, you need to access the version history of the video. This feature is available in the Loom dashboard. Once you're in the dashboard, find the video you want to restore and click on it. This will open the video's individual page.

On the video's individual page, look for the "Version History" option. This is usually located on the right side of the page. Click on it and a list of all the versions of the video will appear. Find the original version you want to restore and click on the "Restore" button next to it. This will restore the video to its original version. Please note that this feature might not be available in all Loom plans.
