Hi and welcome to the forum!

No such thing in Draw. Use Ctrl+Z to undo. Else, use another application (like The Gimp if not vectorized format needed).

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Ctrl+Z will delete the entire last input. But I would require only some portions to be erased/deleted from the page, irrespective of input sequence. Is it possible?
Do not suggest a white brush for this work.

Sometimes that is the simplest way: just cover the parts you don't want with a white shape with no outline. That's about the closest thing to an eraser function.
