problem updating your Instructable Answered

I try to create an instructable adding title and body using copy/paste from the win 7 text editor but when a picture is uploaded (300x300 96.5kb) then this message appears and the screen holds on updating forever.

Would you mind providing a screenshot?

Can you save the instructable before you add the picture? It sounds like it doesn't like a character in the title. Try just using "test" as title and body text then try saving again.
