    Retrieving automatically saved forum text

    I see that my posts are saved progressively as I work on a message, but I cannot see how to retrieve the saved text. There does not seem to be a button for it. Can someone explain, please?

    I don't know if the forum has its own way to retrieve it, but I use Lazarus automatic form save for Firefox to get back text if I lose the connection or the text gets deleted somehow.

    If there is a way without using a browser AddOn I would be curious to know how to do it also.

    If you write something at some point it saves it. If you then browse away to another page (or lose connection or restart your PC) when you come back to that thread you'll see this button in the bottom left of the "quick reply" box as shown here.

    Clicking on it will restore up to the last save point. The button is only shown if there is some text to retrieve.

    I don't know if there is another way...

    Now that I see the screen shot I remember that button. It may be a good idea if you are a FF user to check out the Lazarus AddOn as it seems to save several versions of the text and works with most sites. Although it can cause FF to bog sometimes. But lately FF seems to have no trouble bogging on its own.
