Unfortunately, the set of actions in pcb is not complete, yet. Undo (and 
redo for that matter) are part of the commands that wait for someone to 
implement. It would be great if each and every activity that can be 
initiated via the GUI could also be executed with an action command. This 
would allow for scripted production of layouts.

If this was complemented with some kind of procedure control (if-then-
else, for-until, variables) then some fancy projects would become 
possible. -- just dreaming.

Undo with [u] works in both applications :-)

However, I frequently type [n] in pcb if I want to draw a line...
