I have tried the SAVE AS clone thing on several pages, and it's a no go... I used to use it before, but recently it doesn't work.
Thought maybe my codes were interrupting the process, so I tried it on a blank page with no html, still a no go... Please help, thanks.

Hi there,

At the moment the Save As function will work if you have edited the page and not saved it. You can do this by clicking in a text widget or dropping a text widget onto the page to create unsaved changes. It looks like this is a bug on our part and we will be logging it to be fixed.

Oh ok, thanks...

One other thing, when copying and pasting, why doesn't it paste in the same way it was copied? All kinds of spaces and line breaks are being added to my codes.... Thanks

Hello Yola_User_A

When you copy and paste, please be sure to run it through NotePad first. This will strip away any inherent formatting that could end up breaking your site. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Yeah I have actually been doing that believe it or not, it's just a tad bit irritating that's one reason I asked, the other is because it seems like before I used to get it to paste exactly the same if I would just drag the cursor down and then cut, but somehow that doesn't work anymore... My days sadly pass me by as I do my work here on this computer, anything that could save time I need to know about. lol

Thanks Sanja

Have you made any changes to your browser lately such as upgrading to a newer version?

I used to always trick it into pasting right lol, sometimes it would break when you paste it if you didn't drag your cursor, like if you just tried to select all and copy or cut... Seems like dragging down or up and cutting worked for me. I remember that because I had some dynamic drive codes and you cannot get those things out of wack, or they WILL NOT work. lol

I might have a new version of firefox, seems like I did update it recently - anyway I'll just have to have notepad at my right hand from now on I guess... ; ) It's cool I'm used to it now. lol

Thanks

A simple way that works for me when pasting html in the box:
Copy from notepad
Right click/choose Select All in the Yola html box
Ctrl V to paste.

That way you don't have to mess around with dragging and deleting what's already in the Yola html box. There's always a chance of missing some. Steps above are much easier and quicker.
Good luck.

Sure, drag or select all, works fine either way... I have been using notepad I just didn't want to have to... Trying to omit that step. lol Thanks

yea, this was annoying for me. It use to work whether or not you had unsaved work. Now it's only enabled if you have something to save.
