I was editing some finalized orders (x next to them), it said I had all my orders still to make. Someone else finalized (the final players to do so) and it resolve my orders as holds (hours before deadline).

I can only sympathize… I had made the same "mistake" in the very first turn if my very first game.

From what I understand, clicking on the "x" does cancel the individual entry (move, support, etc), which will then be resolved as "hold", but it does not impact the status of the whole set of moves (finalized, not finalized).

On the other hand, if you want to urgenly "unfinalize" your orders, you can go to the "Menu-based order entry" window (the button on the bottom right corner, under the map), and then simply click on "Submit orders". The whole set of (unchanged but) re-submitted moves will need a new finalization.
That's what I do when I suddenly feel the need to reconsider my already submitted moves.

Alternatively, changing any one of your orders, unfinalizes all of them. You can then edit any of your orders at your discretion while the ones you don't touch will still have your former orders entered.
