    Typed up a fairly long trip report (and kept seeing Autosave happening) at the bottom of the page. When I went to preview, Chrome crashed. Any ideas if I can go back and find the "draft" that autosaved?

    Go back yo wherever you were composing the post and start again. Hopefully you'll see a button near the bottom of the editor window that says "restore auto saved content" or something like that.

    Always best to compose a long and important post in something like a word processor with auto save anyway (Word or Pages on Mac).

    Hard to do on my phone, which covers 60%+ of my browsing and contributing here. I often have to multiple-edit my posts to grab pieces from different places and often Safari on my phone crashes at seemingly random times that I think are when Autosave is trying to kick in. I really wish I could get some plain, freeform text boxes to update in b/c sometimes I wonder if the WYSIWYG processing adds to Safari crashing.

    Try evernote.

    I have not tried it on iOS but it works wonders on Windows. I use free version, it is more than sufficient for me

    Some strange synchronicity, Chrome crashed on me while composing this post, creating an opportunity to test Auto restore. It works :cool:

    Evernote is a great program and should sync to cloud. I use it on iOS.
