Sort command, e.g. done via TextFX plugin can be undone normally, I tested it right now.

You have these options:

  • Determine which plugin does the sorting in your case and consider uninstalling it.

  • Or just remove the keyboard shortcut from that sort action using Settings > Shortcut Mapper.

  • Or alter keyboard shortcut for sorting to something less easy to press,
    e.g. change it from Ctrl+Z (which is NOT a default sorting shortcut, btw.) to Ctrl+Shift+Z etc.
