How do I fix this? I saved trying to see what would happen if I did that and it didn't work.

this means you've run out of undo. max only remembers your actions a certain distance back, so you can't undo past that. i believe it's either capped at about 30, or it's based on the ram you have.

If you saved it then there's nothing to undo.

I could not set my undo to zero (it would only go to one) and I could not get it to grey out no matter what I tried.
Did you try restarting like bennGmann suggested?

theres a bug in version 9 and higher that randomly disables undo until you close & reopen the program. They released a patch within the past months, but it doesn't fix it 100%.

What bennGmann said worked! Thanks so much. I should of thought of that but didn't want to do anything until I knew what was going on. I got 3ds max 2010 but it is the trial version. BennGmann thats exactly what happened to me. I was shocked I mean it took me a few hours to do. All I have to say is god they need to change somethings.
