    Failing to submit my post

    Being noticeably challenged as a computer-type guy, I frequently will write what I consider to be a literary masterpiece to be posted or "submitted" onto the forum.

    In my haste to gaze fondly at my own words, I sometimes hit "new posts by date" instead of "submit" and my words of wisdom are apparently lost out into the ether. I have not found a way to correct that mistake unless I am willing to re-type the entire post. Is it possible it can be retrieved and I am not aware how?

    Re: Failing to submit my post

    I have done things like that a few times so what I've started doing on replies longer than a few words is use Word to reply and then copy and paste the reply to the reply window. You can also hit Ctrl+A then ctrl+C once you're done writing and it'll copy the contents to clipboard. Then if you hit the wrong key, all you have to do is paste it back in the window and you're right back where you were. You do have to select and copy BEFORE you do something stupid for it to work.

    this isn't forum specific but if I type something long, I often highlight and copy if before I post. That way if the post fails just paste it into a new one. Trying to remember to do that is the tricky part.
