[Orgmode] Re: Undoing from Org Done Notes

I avoid this issue with

| (setq org-use-fast-todo-selection t)

then I use C-c C-t and select the todo item I want directly.  I no
longer deal with going through the wrong state (and prompting for a
note) before going to my desired todo keyword.

My org-todo-keywords are:

| (setq org-todo-keywords
|       '((sequence "TODO(t)" "NEXT(n)" "WAITING(w@/!)" "ONGOING(o)" 
"SOMEDAY(s@/!)" "|" "DONE(d!/!)" "CANCELLED(c!/!)")
|       (sequence "QUOTATION(Q!)" "QUOTED(D!)" "APPROVED(A!)" "|" "EXPIRED(E!)" 
|       (sequence "OPEN(O!)" "|" "CLOSED(C!)")))

Hope that works for you too.
