I cannot seem to find the ribbon buttons for undo/redo operations. When I write scripts I use these two functions very frequently and I was able to navigate my changes back and forth in MATLAB R2010a by clicking on the buttons. With R2014A these buttons are now gone. Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y are still working but I prefer the visual buttons.
Anyone know how to bring Undo/Redo buttons back?

You can add them to your "Quick Access Toolbar" through preferences.

Just to complement Sean's answer, they are supposed to be at the top right corner of the window right aside the search box.
Here is a screenshot from the default layout on my computer:

Great help. They are not so obvious in their new location in 2014a

Thank you both. I must be blind. Never noticed the "quick access" toolbar on the top right. I guess I need more time to get acquainted with all the changes R2014A brings. I have been using MATLAB since 2003! :)

Hi There, I have just started using MATLAB R2014A, as excel is just not cutting it for the current course that I am working on. I found the undo and redo buttons (and they appear to be enabled/selected in my toolbar) but when I press them nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
