HP Seriously needs an "Undo" button, so when I delete a capsule by mistake, I can click undo, and not lose an hours work. Crap.
I don't know if this still works, but I used to navigate to another page, and when a message comes up saying "Do you really want to leave before finishing" click yes. Then when I came back, it would be how it was before.
Might still be in browser cache if go back; though with capsule deletion, probably a long shot.
Solaras, you can look up your hub in Google and click Cache View. This will show you the previously archived version of your hub and you can copy the text you had deleted.
A better solution, for future reference, is to do all your work off line. I create all my hubs in MS Word and then copy the text to capsules when I'm ready to create the hub online. This way I also have a backup of all my hubs on my computer.
In this instance I was working on a table, actually I had completed it, and added things to it that had just popped into my head. I was almost finished with the hub, and thought to clean up some of the extra things the template had offered me, and accidentally deleted this table with 11 rows in it. Aghhh.
I create tables off line also. I create everything dealing with a new hub offline. So if you do that you'll never run into that problem.
HP is very busy with making changes for important issues, such as the subdomain changes this week to improve search ranking. So it's not worth the time spent adding features that we have alternatives to anyway.
I still think it is a good suggestion. Perhaps not the top priority, and sure we can work around it, but I think a lot of people would appreciate an undo or revert to saved button.
Yeah... what Glenn said. Working offline will save you the trouble of remembering everything you said and serve as a backup.
I did it for my leafy green hubs on my WP software, Open Office. I'm sure MS Office would have the same feature. I wasn't able to do it here somehow.

I've been getting a blank screen when I hit "edit" to update Hubs for about an hour now. Might it be a glitch, or is it me? Thanks!

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing...

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get...
