This convention is usually marked by writing and circling the word stet above or beside the unwanted edit and underscoring the selection with dashes or dots. Alternatively, a circled tick may be used in the margin.
In connection with this usage, stet is also sometimes used as a verb, e.g., "Stet that colon."
It has also been used on the blackboard in school rooms to mean "do not erase this work".
