Me again! Once more I’m having seemingly random issues with scene/chapter abstracts. They’re randomly deleting themselves, and for some reason while I was in the middle of typing one out for a new scene, in mid-keystroke, it decided to delete all the text from that abstract and copy/pasted the one from the prologue in its place.
No, I haven’t touched the one from the prologue in months. It wasn’t in my clipboard.
As far as I can tell, ctrl+z doesn’t work in the notes/abstract editor, and I can’t find any separate text document housing these things. Has ANYONE encountered this, or am I just losing it? @.@
If anyone has, have you found a fix/workaround to recover ‘lost’ Abstracts?
sorry to hear you’re having those issues, but I have no idea what’s happening there. Is it possible that while typing you accidentally triggered some hotkeys? Or did you jump scenes somehow so what you are seeing is the notes for a different scene altogether?
Apart from that, Strg + z works in the abstract field for me (Win 11).
Thanks for trying, but no. I’m quite sure this isn’t what’s happening. Since it does it sometimes when my hands aren’t even on the keyboard or mouse at all (I’ve been AFK and come back and it’s changed) It’s almost like… when it goes to autosave, it reassigns random abstracts to have text from different chapters. If it’s doing such a thing, it’s likely related to the sheer size of the volume I’m working on, or maybe memory issues. It could even be unique to me.
Thusfar it’s only happening when I’m working on my current novel, which is currently around 96.7k words spread over 31 chapters.
On the bright side, I’m almost done with it.
