Save drafts to the cloud


It would be great if drafts of pages/assignments/announcements etc were automatically saved to cloud a la Google Docs (or most any cloud service these days) as they are written.  Too many times have I started working on one and then lost the whole thing.

Auto Save was completed as part of the new RCE (rich content editor).  You can find more information in the Canvas Release Notes (2020-03-21) - Canvas Community

I see, thank you!  Thanks to Canvas for implementing this!  I have been using it.  Although I should probably let you know that there might be some bugs such as frequent prompts to restore "saved content" on posts that never had any earlier drafts.   If I recall, I think that in particular this sometimes happens on comments on an Announcement or Discussion post in which I will start to write a new comment and get asked if I would like to restore an earlier draft.  But that can't be right because I never had an earlier draft of that particular comment.  It's not a super big deal but just thought I'd let you know.
