Topic Wiki

I figured that even this thread can have a wiki.
If your computer or phone is giving you issues:

• Please read this before posting: 4 Reasons Why IT People Ignore Your Requests for Help
• Restart the computer. Hopefully this will take care of any issues
• If your problem has not yet been solved, try to Google it. There may be a very simple solution
• On a Windows computer, a system restore may do the trick.
(This is a work in progress, please feel free to add whatever you may feel is helpful)


Please post whether or not the problem was fixed

By default its set to auto-save at preset intervals of time. You should be able to retrieve those versions in the file menu.
Ik but it hasn't been saving for a while.

If its a cookies issue, deleting your browser history (including cookies) may help. Warning, it will probably delete all your auto-entries...passwords, forms, and the like. Can't say for sure, as I'm not a buki..

In Chrome or Firefox, press control-shift-delete. It may be a good idea to delete your cache as well as cookies. See if that helps. It shouldn't delete passwords etc. unless those items are checked off.

It's not in tablet mode.  I have no idea what user-agent info is.  What you mind to educate me?
