    Replying to a private message...

    Hi.
    Typing a private response, saw the brief yellow "auto saved"...
    Tried to attach a picture from my computer, got lost in space with no way to do it. Seems only web based files/pictures can be attached

    Went back to resume typing; something timed out.
    Logged in again. All the typed message disappeared. No prompt to restore the 'auto saved' An elaborated response, trashed.

    Guidance please ?

    Re: Replying to a private message...

    Often I must open a new window of a thread, because of a problem accessing the image uploader. Usually I am able to 'Restore Auto-saved'.
    However when it does not restore, it tends to be due to Edaboard dropping the connection suddenly as I typed my reply.

    Can you look in your History and find the thread where you composed your reply? (The first visit, not the second visit.) That may have a working link whcih restores your lost message.

    Thanks.
    Went to the browser history; clicked on the earliest pertinent to reply link and the 'Groups' screen showed up.
    Did it again, and asked to log-in.
    Logged in; the 'Restore auto saved' button showed up but did not restore anything...
