Hi @ff12 

That must have been incredibly frustrating!

Those of us who grew up on computers of the '80s and '90 have developed a Save habit, and yet still get bitten once in a while. I typically suggest to my students to do their longer entries in Word or Google docs first, then copy paste into Canvas. However, this is a pain, but beyond Google, auto-save is still rather rare.

You can help Instructure improve Canvas through Idea Conversations in this Community, where users create and support ideas for new or improved features. I just checked in there and found Auto Save or Save Warning. Check out this idea, add your own comments and support by rating the idea.

Good luck,

Kelley
