'Not Undoable' translation

Post by Colin »

On the Glyph transformer (i have version 11.5)
is the phrase 'This operation in not undoable' (English)

Of course I understand the logic of it,
meaning 'This operation cannot be undone'

However in English (UK) it sounds like 'This operation is not impossible'
which is not the meaning it should have.

I don't see this going anywhere. Glyph transformations are now undoable in later versions.

I made a valid suggestion to help.

'Glyphs transformers are now undoable'
means ...
'Glyphs transformers are now impossible'

The current usage is fine, and easy to understand.
