It`s so frustrating. Sometimes I write a post, which can be time consuming, and then I unintentionally hit some part of my keyboard and it is gone.

Is there a way to restore it in such a situation, like those 2 arrows in the WORD program, where you can go back or forward to the last changes you have made?

If you are writing a long post best do it on a "stable" medium like Notepad, Word, etc.. Then when you are done just copy/paste here.

I find if you click away from the post and thread, then click back on to it - there is an option to restore the text you'd written. (Or you can clear all). I don't know if everyone sees this.

That works most of the time but I have found it doesn't always work - admittedly that could be down to the three bottles of merlot I have to drink before I can face this forum!

Certainly if I was doing a trip report I would do it in Word first where it's autosaved, then copy across, but as the biggest trip I've done in five years is to the local pub or supermarket, I haven't bothered* :)

*If there is enough interest I will do a supermarket trip report, including photos.

Spare us the supermarket report frank!

Writing up a TR on Word then copying to the forum doesn't work actually. I tried to and the formatting was all mucked up - tiny font which everyone complained about (hehe) ..

BTW I always take fistfuls of peyote and mescaline before logging on. B)

You're missing out, but not only that other people would be missing out because you're so selfish

Apologies to the OP for yet another threadfuck

This is how I do my TR's, it's probably one of the best ways, once you paste your text here, you just open the 'size' panel and choose a size, wish it were like that when choosing LB's :), from memory I think 14 or 16 is the proper size font.

There used to be a functioning 'auto save', once you started typing something and didn't post it straight away, it used to auto save it but I tried waiting for it to pop up, it didn't.

You used to be able to click on 'quote' and whatever you had typed in previously would automatically be there.

All good brother, I fully understand, that some of you desperately need something to fuck and if there is no LB around and the next trip to LB heaven far away then at least a good thread will do.

:D

Now, seriously, in another forum I use to write occasionally, there are those 2 arrows

where you can undo your last action.

A text, you unintentionally deleted, won`t be restored by the editor, only if you closed the session without posting it.
