How to return to 'ible in progress? Answered

I started creating an instructable in the new editor, saving as I went. I shut down my computer and went to take pictures to add to it. When I returned and opened up Instructables, I can't seem to find where my instructable in progress is. Any guidance is appreciated. And, yes, I feel a bit stupid.

Progress!

I published my Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Props-Cigarett... and it now shows up in my profile. Thank you both for your guidance.

Now, I just need to figure out why the gif is showing only as a picture. I'll ask that separately.

Let's see if I can get that link to work:

It seems that it should be in drafts but isn't. I don't have that entire row when I'm in my profile. I'm hoping that it will appear once fully published. It is saved though!

That is in "View All Instructables".

Bummer that your first Instructable, I don't know if you would have that page.

Thank god for history and book marks Eh.

Hopefully you'll find it by clicking 'You' at the top right of the page, then select 'Drafts' from the drop down menu.

It should give you a list of I'bles in progress with the option to Edit them when you hover the mouse over the thumbnail or after you click the thumb to open it.

Thank you both for trying to help. Unfortunately, the draft shows in neither place. I don't have the "Instructables" option after "Your Classes" in the drop-down menu nor do I get the Published/Draft/Launch Stats horizontal list that I can see in Josehf's screenshot.

Oddly, I finally did find it just now, but only through going to my history and finding the link where I was working on it. Thankfully, the full draft, all steps, is there (I have completed the text, was ready to add pics). And, I'm able to edit it, but it isn't showing anywhere in my profile that I can find.

Being paranoid, I also checked to be sure that I was logged in as myself when editing the draft. I thought that I might have created two profiles somehow. But, that's not the problem.

So, the good news is that I bookmarked the page and can finish the Instructable. And, I'm hoping that once I publish it, I will see it in my profile.

There have been a few updates to the site recently that have made some things go a bit crazy now and then, might be something to do with that. But glad you found it anyway :-)
