Private Messages and having to Log In Again

Post by Kelly Mc » August 10th, 2017, 11:45 pm

I would like to know how to preserve my PM as occasionally when I hit submit, I am having to log in again the PM I have written disappears.

Thanks to anyone who could tell me how to prevent that.

One approach here, Kelly (and forgive me if you know this and there's a bigger problem):


When you write a PM, with your cursor still in the script box, hit CTRL A in that order, but holding both keys down simultaneously.

This will highlight all you've written.

Release the keys.

Do the same with CTRL C to copy everything highlighted.

Release the keys.

Now you can temporarily go to "notepad", or Office "WORD", and paste (CTRL V) all your script in a tempoary page. You can save this page or just hold it in a temporary spot so you check your success with your PM submission.

(I use "WORD" because you can run spell and grammer check before you post.)

If you've lost your work in the PM editor, you can copy any paste it all back again.
