Is there a button to push that brings back text that you accidentally deleted? (Like the UNDO button on word processors) Can that be done in a text box on say, HubPages? Do we have some special button on our keyboards or in our Toolbars or something? I get really frustrated when I have to retype my long winded paragraph responses 2 or 3 times. :D

Yeah. I always do my hubs in Word just for this purpose after accidently deleting one of my old hubs. Glad you found this useful! :D
Oh... I almost can't wait for my text to disappear to try this out! :D
Thanks a million... I really hope this works! I just lost a huge amount of text this morning... oh how I wish this wasn't buried in my email! lol Thanks again!
Ha ha! That is so awesome, thank you! I don't know how people find these things out... so good to know! Those buttons are going to become my favorites! :D
epbooks - This has not happened to me so I will keep it in mind. I simply have one question. Do you mean when you hit the actual 'Delete' button on the keyboard, or when you are in the 'Edit' box and click on the 'discard' button?
The Examiner - 1- It's usually if you hit the delete button. In some programs, it you hit the discard button, it gets rid of it completely and then ctrl+z won't work.
epbook - Thank you.
Where am I clicking save?
At the top right of the box which you are editing in. When you click 'Save', you will return to the main edit page. Click 'Edit' in the capsule you were working on and continue where you left off.
Oh, oh! Thank you!!! Good to know! I appreciate that, hopefully it will help others as well!
I just hope that works for you. It has not disappeared on me yet. (knock, knock) :-)
I hate to have to test the theory, but I'll be ready if I need to! Thanks again! Where's the wood? :D
I am at my computer desk, so there.
Ha ha... Mine's wood too! Always handy to have around in such situations :D
Word has a 'W' in the upper left corner. Immediately right of that is small square which is a floppy disk and when you click on this it saves the current screen. That is the easy way. You can also click on 'File' and then 'Save'.
Thanks WalterPoon, so no magic button huh? I'd like to think someone's working on that invention as we speak! The things we can do with technology you'd think that would be a simple task! ... I guess I'll just have to do what you do! :D Thanks again!
Cantuhearmescream, actually HubPages could implement an autosave feature, just like in Gmail, when we're writing an email.
Well that would certainly be a great idea! I'll sign the petition if you start one :D
