why is my undo not working

Cntrl Z (undo) not working.
It appears to be turing a parameter on and off inside Buffer shuffler (max) but not undoing or redoing my larger changes.
It also appears to be slightly indiscriminate, working sometimes and not others.
 
Any ideas? 
 
Very frustrating.

    Hi,

    Anyone has a fix for that as my copy of Live 64 bit started to play up with the Undo?

     

    Same as above, if I start e new project or if I save, I have one or two Undo working then it's back to "trk 5 play", "trk 6 play" 

    Unbelievable from Ableton not to have spotted that and fixed it already. I just updated to the latest version but this issue hasn't been addressed. How good is software without the Undo function !!!

     

    It looks like it's an ongoing issue ( the old !first post is 1 old!

    Some Max devices *keep* sending commands to Ableton that it interprets as user actions, presumably Buffer Shuffler is doing that (is that the original or v2.0 version?). You'll find in instances like that Ableton constantly appears that the project has changed even if you haven't done anything!

    Unfortunately the only way round is to find a Max device that 'behaves itself'. Here's the grizzly details if you're interested - https://cycling74.com/forums/topic/parameter-modulation-without-adding-to-undo-history/

    Undo is very buggy for me too, but nothing to do with M4L (i don't use it). Sometimes i will get 1 or 2 levels of undo, but 90% of the time i get "Enable Channel 9" as the only undo / redo event available... and this is across every project! Something messed up with 9.6 as this was never an issue before. It's unbelievably frustrating.. let's get this fixed Ableton!

    Yeah, I'm having the same issues.

    And it just started out of the blue. I was working on a project, everything was going great, then all of a sudden I notice the Undo is only going back one step. 

    I was in the middle of cutting an audio sample.

    I have the latest Live, latest Sierra OSX, and run an iMac 27"

    --

    After restarting the computer, I notice if I start a new Live Project, the undo works.

    But the project I was working on, because I saved, is carrying on with the issue.

    Same here..
    OSC BUDDY keeps sending data and so UNDO while playing is not working.
    very dangerous in live performance... anyone find a workaround?

    I thought it was every time you hit Save (Command S) Your undo history stops at that point..
