Undoing an Update

You can undo a TextGridLab update and revert to an earlier version by the following steps:

  3. Click the Installation Details button.
  4. Select the Installation History button.
  5. In the upper list, select the update level you wish to restore. The list below shows the installation contents of this level for review.
