    Restoring Lost Typed Text - Auto-Save Function.

    I have seen various people mention losing text they have typed as a reply, only for it to somehow disappear on them. As typing can be such an effort for many of us here, I want to make sure everybody knows about the auto-save function.

    If I type out text and for some reason it gets lost or deleted in error, there's an inbuilt 'auto-save' function on the forum, which saves the text every few minutes - members don’t need to do anything in their settings to enable auto-save, it happens automatically.

    If you have lost or deleted text in error, refresh the page (press F5 or click the ⟳ symbol) and you should see this message on your text box:

    Click the 'Restore' option and the saved text will magically reappear πŸ‘πŸ‘ Any text typed since the last auto-save won't appear, but most will.
    The important thing to remember is to refresh the page after you lose text.

    Admin_MND I hope it's OK for me to post this topic in this sub-forum, I couldn't figure out where else it would sit and be easily found, if not, move the thread, thanks.


    GillB I hope your days of frustration of accidentally deleting content are over 🀞🀞 It was your comment on another thread which spurred me into action.

    Hope this all makes sense to users.

    Love Ellie.

    Thanks for this. I use it already and it works on mobile devices too.

    What I actually meant is deleting on Predictable as the conversation moves on and it is no longer relevant. I find I do that all the time when in a group of two or more people, πŸ˜€

        Oops GillB my apologies πŸ₯΄ Thanks for clarifying that auto-save works on mobile devices πŸ‘

        Yes, I definitely understand about chat moving on - I try to preempt the flow of conversation and say something relevant, sometimes with hilarious results, oh well 😏😍
