How can I undo my theme template changes?

Sometimes you need to get the original copy of a theme file back. With all files (except ones in the assets/ folder), Shopify gives you the ability to restore the original file that came with the theme.

This is handy if you've made some edits to a file and need to revert them to a previous file version. Sometimes it's an app that injects code into a file and breaks something.

How do you know what files have been edited in your theme? You can notice which theme files are edited with a small purple dot:

If you don't see any dots, it's likely because you duplicated your theme so it thinks it is brand new.

Shopify has a built-in feature for this which you can find instructions for here:

Roll back to an older version of your theme

Note: It is not possible to rollback to previous versions of files in your assets folder, like CSS, JavaScript, JSON or image files. If you are planning to edit these, please make a backup first.
