Undo shortcut not working in Eclipse

The key bindings are stored in the file [workspace].metadata.pluginsorg.eclipse.e4.workbenchworkbench.xmi.

You can search for Ctrl+Z in this file. What does it look like? You could try to edit it by hand.

Of course, it is advisable to backup the workspace before.

From time to time, I have encountered similar issues with keyboard shortcuts. They just disappear, or doesnt seem to work as expected.

Until I figure out what the root cause is, I check key bindings.

Window > Preferences > General > Keys

Check if the key bindings are still valid. If not, then set them and it should work.

Look for Undo in the list, if the Binding is empty click on Restore Command apply and close. That should enable the shortcut.
