    Not sure I get your question, but 2nd button from the right at the top of the box is undo, alternatively highlight all the text and delete it :dontknow:

    Now if I could only see an f'n tweet that I post :facepalm:

    Not using "noscript" in either FF or Chrome. I disable AdBlockPlus, no effect. Pretty Sure Chrome has the most browser share, weird that I'm not seeing anyone else with the issue.

    :hat: though

    If I delete a reply that I don't want to use and then reply to another post that deleted reply returns and appears in the new reply.
    I have to edit posted reply to remove the deleted reply.
    Am I the crazy one?

    My guess is that it is the 'autosave' 'draftsave' ?
    Can that be turned off?

    My spellchecked posts get unspellchecked by this autosave feature too?

    auto save sometimes messes up my spell check.

    Type a reply to this post.
    Do not send it.
    Delete it.
    Go to another thread.
    Come back
    The post you deleted reappears.

    Gets annoying and confusing when you come back and reply to another post.
    The deleted one reappears and now you've replied to two posts.
    One you intended on replying to and the deleted one you didn't want to send.





    Also if the autosave occurs before you spell check your post and you go to 'more options' or 'preview' some or none of your spell check is saved.

    That happens when you never hit post. Never using the text.
    Let me see if i can adjust this to a shorter time.
