Auto saved content

While composing messages/replies to threads, a little yellow flag appears from time to time, telling me the content was saved automatically to that point. Yesterday, while composing something, I was drawn away from the "Quick Reply" box. When I returned to it, the panel was blank and all I had typed so far was gone. It occurred to me then that I had no idea how to retrieve the "Auto Saved" content so had to start again.
Any clues please?

I just typed the below and then went back to the previous screen, came back in and there is a "restore auto-saved content button" in the bottom left of the reply box. But I have lost posts before.

Best bet if you are typing a long and considered post is to occasionally select all (ctrl+A), copy it (ctrl+C) then paste it if the worst happens...

Thanks Treaders. I can see the sense in that.

If I’m preparing a long post, I’ll often use a text editing program and then paste it into PPRuNe when I’m done.

I believe checking the remember me box when you log-in also prevents your response from timing out.
