Nope, because the text is gone. <grin>

Okay, here's a more specific test:

1.  Create a new print document
2.  Type "this is a test"
3.  Shift Home to select it
4.  Shift F3 to change its case (it becomes This Is A Test)
5.  Control Z to undo the last action, which I thought would be the change
in case (the text goes away completely)
6.  Control Z as Peter requested (nothing happens because there's nothing
left in the undo "stack")
7.  Control Y to redo (the text reappears as This Is A Test)

Joanie,

Chances are that the job was left "unfinished" by the first Undo. Does
selecting Undo a second time finish the job?

Hi again.  I just came across something else with respect to Undo that I
found unexpected:  Undo does not undo Change Case.
 
1.  Type a few words
2.  Select those words and press Shift F3 3.  Press Control Z.  
 
Expected behavior (in my mind):  The case change gets undone Actual
behavior: The text goes away completely because the last action as far as
DBT is concerned was the typing of that text
