There is no "backout" option to the submited changelist anymore.

I'm using the version 2018.4 of p4v.

It become a pain to restore the state of a bunch of files before a specific changelist!

Hi SDAlex,

The backout operation has been renamed to Undo. You should see the option Undo changes in Changelist 'XXXXXX' when you right click on a submitted changelist.

I hope this helps,

Thanks!

I already tried this option but it didn't work! Nothing happened when I clicked Undo changes in Changelist 'XXXXXX'.
I just try with a few others changelist and it seems it doesn't work when there are modifications in more than on stream!

Turn up P4V logging.  In P4V, run Edit, Preferences, Logging, and check Show p4 reporting commands, Show p4 command output, and Enable logging to file.  Then from the bottom pane, right-click Clear Log, and reproduce the undo and see if you see any messages.

Also I should point out that if the "affected files" in your submitted changelist contains 2 different depots, then Undo will in fact do nothing.
This should be fixed in the new version that was just released this week 2019.1

oops sorry, i think I just repeated you about the different depots/streams.

Try the new version I saw this in the release notes

#96971 (Change #1751146)
        When a changelist contains files from multiple depots, P4V now recognizes //...
        as the common path when launching the 'Undo' dialog.

Back out update set is just a UI Action. Open UI Actions for the table, look at the conditions on it, and see what condition you’re not meeting to have it be visible.
