EG editor

While in base SAS if I submitted code numerous times I could use the F4 key to retrieve sequential past submits.  Is this possible in EG?

Re: EG editor

No, EG doesn't use the same submit/recall model as the SAS windowing environment.  It doesn't clear the window when you submit, and it doesn't have a "recall" feature to retrieve previously submitted lines.

You can use the Project Log to keep a history of all of the log results for each iteration of your program. 

You can also select NOT to "Replace results" when you re-run a program, and then EG will make a copy of the program to "preserve" your previous version and log in the process flow.  That's a bit awkward though, so I don't recommend it.
