Hello @LoriManilla 

There is a built in feature that will auto-save discussions but it largely depends on  your institution and it has been enabled. You can read more about it here:  Solved: Auto-Save? - Instructure Community  Basically you need the RCE enhancements turned on by your school and it likely already has been. However, there still exists the technical issues stemming from your browser, device, and  even wifi. For anything longer than a couple of sentences, it is recommended  that you type it elsewhere should there be an issue with sending the reply to the Canvas servers. Writing it out on Google Docs, Microsoft Word, notes, etc. is all advised should there be an issue you can copy/paste your reply without retyping it. Once you see it loaded in the bottom of the discussion, you are good to go and  it will stay.
