restore this version   I am working on a syllabus for a class I am going to be teaching. I came back to the syllabus to find that my description was replaced with random gibberish by my 1 year old.

Once again revision history in Google Docs has saved me. Without any stress I went to the File menu in Google Docs and chose “See revision history.”

Clicking on the sidebar an option to “Restore this revision” becomes available. The revisions for that version are color coded in the preview so you can be sure that is the version you want to restore. Everything is back to normal.
