How do you cancel an in-progress operation in AE?

For instance, I move a layer but grabbed the wrong axis.. Can I cancel that so it resets to where I started? Or do I have to 'undo' that operation..?

In autodesk products, the mouse's right-click cancels the current operation. Very quick and handy..

Just a regular 'Undo' after the command has completed, eh?

Another feature request, I guess..

Turning on caps-lock stops the composition window from updating; might be what you're after.
