    Default last place edited?

    hi,

    is there a different between "the last place edited" and " the last edited place" ?

    I think we need more context than that.

    In a Microsoft word document, pressing CTRL+ALT+Z will take you back to the last place edited.

    In this case, last place edited is correct. It is a shorter way of saying
    ... to the last place that you or Word edited something.

    Probably the same meaning, but it would be maybe a bit more awkward phrasing in the example you cited. I can't really think of an example where it would be smoother. How about, "During their occupation of that country, the edited place names on maps were designed to confuse the enemy."

    In short, either would probably work, and be understood.
