GET RID OF THE REVERT HOTKEY!
The hot key for Revert is WAY too similar to the hot key for Save As in Photoshop and I lost an entire day fo work saving after finishing a project. The fact that that can happen accidentally, even with the approval button is INFURIATING!
We have started working on this request. This was only a Mac-related issue where the shortcut got changed. We are setting it back to F12. We are not removing this shortcut, because a lot if users do use this shortcut. If you want to remove it, or change it to even more obscure key, you can do it as per your liking by editing the shortcut.

Hm. As far as I remember, AI's default hotkey for 'Revert' is F12.
And you can clear it in Keyboard shortcuts to nothing easily.
Why didn't you do it and what exactly combination do you speak of?
On Mac? I don't know such a command for Windows version. I know 'Revert' and it is F12 and it rewinds only to saved state and it's easily disables via hotkeys settings.
Illustrator users almost always work in conjunction with photoshop. When you're in a rush you might try to use photoshop's "step backwards" and quickly blast through the menu/ hit enter... completely deleting all your work with no hope of restoring it.
It's insanity that you would pick this shortcut for such a destructive action considering its the most commonly used shortcut in the most popular adobe software.
