Saving patches?

I recently used a patch, and system says I can still send 14 of them. Is this number for a time or by suscription? I mean, if I redeem another pro suscription I will add my non-used patches to the new ones or I will lose them if I don't use them while this suscription lasts? Thanks for your time!

How to Save Electricity

Saving Electricity: How to Save Electricity Welcome!I've always hated "How-To" guides which don't explain why a certain tip works, or how well it works. Sometimes a topic is just as mysterious after you read the guide.My guide is different.In all honesty, this guide is a bit simplistic, but it does have a nice description of why there's no point to worrying about surges when electronic devices are powered up.

Instructable text not saving

I have written text for my instructable a couple of times. Each time the autosave says it saved it just a minute ago or whatever. But I found out that you have to manually hit the "Save" button before the "Publish" button, or all my changes were lost. This happened to me a couple of times. What about adding an alert, if an author has added text, asking if they want to save first because text has been changed? The autosave is NOT adding the new text to the instructable, which breaks my heart after all the work I put into it.

Save Instructables in a Folder

Hi, I am not sure if this has been suggested before.  I have been a member for years on this site and find the projects fantastic.  I have even built some!  I am always coming across instructables that I want to try and spend a lot of time on the site surfing and coming across great projects.  I would like to see a feature where we could add an instructable to our own "favourites" list so that we can manage them and go back to them and build them without having to add them to the web-browser favourites.  This way, we can keep a list of those 'ibles that we intend coming back to inside the website.  Perhaps we can even share that list with other users.  Just a thought.

instructables keeps saving

Hello, I have a current problem with creating an instructable. Right now the draft keeps saving. this means I can't go to another step but I can add photo's and text to the page I am currently on. If I create a new tab with instructables he sees only the beginning of my draft which is a shame since that means I need to make the instructable all over again and I was very far. I am using chrome internet browser on a windows laptop I was simply saving what I had wrote down and now it keeps saving for already an hour and I can't do a thing.

Don't forget everyone, daylight savings time starts tonight so be sure to "Spring Back" your clocks 1 hour at 2am tonight. And additionally because last year was a leap year when your clock reaches 2am for a second time, spring back an additional hour. If you live in the southern hemisphere the directions should be reversed ie. spring back 2 hours at 1 am. Europeons, please substitute 100 minutes for one hour to account for the metric conversion.

If you are looking for a car you should think about a priuis hybrid. They get up to 60 mpg!!!!

Notes on images not saving

I was going back through my instructable and found that some of the notes I had written were gone. I thought maybe I messed up and didn't save them so I reentered the text. When I previewed it again they were gone again. I've since tried the old editor, new editor, saving every time I make a tag and its hit or miss. It seems that if the image only has one note on it there is not a problem but as soon as you add more it doesn't work. I haven't been able to successfully add 3 notes to one image yet and it seems that it is random as to which 2 or the 3 gets to stay. This is my first instructable and as much as I love this site I don't know whether I want to go through the ordeal of making another article. Anybody else see this issue?

God save the Queen!

It has been brought to my attention, after many years of being a proud American, that we are all believing a lie. We are all subjects of the British monarchy. Our good people, the conspiracy theorists, whom never have lied to us before are informing us to that fact. Therefore to show my new allegiance to the Crown, I will sing "Rule Britannia" every morning and I will renounce baseball as my favorite sport and I am gladly replacing cricket as my new spectator sport (I still have no idea how the game is played but I will learn sooner or later).

PLEDGE TO SAVE THE PLANET

WipeCarbon campaign designed to kick-start a million pledges from all of us which will reduce emissions of Carbon and help us to reduce the side effects in Global Warming. We are not looking for anything life changing here. Small commitments will not cost you a cent but they will make a big difference! How much does it cost to switch off your lights when you’re not using them? Or to switch off your electronics when they are not in use? These are just some of the small habits which we hope to inspire. A million of these small commitments is a big impact. Its that simple. Each pledge is one more person who cares about the planet. One more person who thinks before they buy or who considers how to reduce the energy waste in their lives. One more person who knows that global warming will not be solved by a single person but by all of us working together. This is what Wipecarbon is about. Come Let us all share and spread this beautiful message around with our loved ones and make this network a strong foundation for creating this Green Globe . Our initiative will surely make more and more people to drive towards it and take this pledge Million of these commitments will make it a ocean and create a beautiful globe joining hands with us. www.wipecarbon.com

Automatic save feature wasting a lot of time and energy

While I was writing a lengthy instructable my parts list step was somehow pasted to every other step erasing what I had previously written.  I had already saved my work before this so I thought I could just go back to my previous save.  Too bad my work was automatically saved.  This feature is terrible.  Please get rid of it, we all know how to use a save button. I suppose the actual bug was in my one step being copied over every other step wasting a ton of my time.

If label hangs off edge of image, save button doesn't work

In the new editor if you have a situation like the attached image where you create a label near the edge of the screen, when you click save it thinks you have clicked outside the image and moves to the next image instead of saving. The workaround is to save it further to the left and then drag it into position. Windows 8.1 update, Chrome Version 34.0.1847.131 m

I especially experienced this problem when having the '+' sign in the text. After saving, closing and reopening my browser, the + sign is replaced by a space. I'm using Firefox 24.0 on Ubuntu 12.04 with cinnamon. Is there anything i can do to use the + sign in my images? Thanks in advance.

Instructable shows my latest reversions sometimes then reverts to old version then back agains

I have a feeling I am doing something wrong since these are my first Instructables. After publishing successfully, I am having the following issues: - I made additional changes to content of Instructables then republished. Sometimes I see the latest version, sometimes it reverts back to previous one. I cleared cache time and again but to no avail, so I am not sure it's the cache.  - I tried to reorder the slides associated with my latest Instructable then saved/published but one slide is stuck in its place and wont move to another location.  - Comments appear then disappear. I am thinking its related to same issue as my first. Not sure.  What am I doing wrong?
