I have the same "Previous View" button in parts, drawings, and assemblies. It's on the "View" toolbar. The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl-Shift-Z.
Thanks for the swift reply.
Yup, that's what mine should say, but it doesn't. VIEW>MODIFY gives me the same Previous View / Undo View Change dilema.
In a part file the VIEW>MODIFY menu shows Ctrl+Shift+Z shortcut, but it doesn't work. In assemblies and drawings it shows Undo View Change with no shortcut. I have all my views (front, back, iso, etc.) mapped to the number pad, so I like ctrl+Num0 for Previous View. I guess I'm stubborn that way.

I do see the different command names under View->Modify that you are seeing. The command also has different names in the Tools->Customize Keyboard tab as you've shown in your picture. However, Ctrl+Shift+Z seems to work for me at any time with one exception: in a drawing (not part or assembly), if the only thing I've done to change the view is zoom using the scroll wheel then Ctrl+Shift+Z does nothing.
I have the same shortcut for this as Joel. I need to be careful when applying mates. It seems to undo the last mate along with going back to the last view.
This reminds me how it was before SW99, don't know
exactly which version. After some enhancerequests it
was changed in a proper zoom previous command.
It is dissapointing to see that these annoying
things show up again 10 years later. It should
be basic functionality that never should be changed
once things are right. Regressions is what users keep
I wonder if it wouldn't be possible to have a test program
to test all functionality that should work just like
in a previous version to prevent these regression including
the ability to have shortcuts to functions. Some simple
to detect regressions could be automatically detected with
a test program
