Specific error in trying to post image notes Answered

When I try to post notes on pictures in Chrome on Mac, I just get the perpetual spinning wheel. Notes were working for me in Firefox, but today when I tried to add a note, I got this error over and over:

error 400 -- invalid json: { top: 0.22568093385214008, left: 0.692, width: 0.24, height: 0.14591439688715954, text:Mmm. Note the focus, the concentration... the enjoyment. }

I tried putting the note in different areas of the picture, but nothing helped. Maybe it's comma related. Aaargh, this grammar thing is killing me. I'll report back shortly.

I understand that Google Chrome will not allow saving the image notes; but using the other browsers does not help overcoming this problem either.
What am i doing wrong? I need to use this feature to qualify the instructable I am constructing and would appreciate help in operating this feature.

I use Google Chrome, running on Windows XP over a relatively fast satellite connection. When i try to add an image note, everything works fine. When i try to save that note, the little "saving your note" flag pops up and the little spinner spins, but the note won't save, it just sits there saying that its saving. Unlike haakon.k, i receive no error message. i have tried to save with no commas, or any punctuation of any kind. I have tried to save the first word, or even the first letter, and then reopen it. it still wont save. I tried to do it on Internet Explorer on my computer, and i tried it on Safari on the Imacs at my school. still doesnt work. HELP! most of my Instructables are image oriented, so the notes would improve them alot.

Wow, thanks all for working this out. This glitch had me baffled and annoyed, but knowing I can just save and then edit means I can roll on with the instructible!

This is a great, detailed report! Especially the fact that certain special characters (comma, slash, and someone else reported colon) cause it.

If you don't get a follow up from I'bles Staff member StumpChunkman by tomorrow, please send him a PM with a link to this bug report. This should be easy to solve with the details provided.

I had this problem a lot. Even without a comma. If I wrote a note longer than 1 line it would get this error.

To avoid this annoyance, I just typed the first word, saved it, then edited it to finish. Still got the error, but at least it would save the note.

Yes, removing the comma allowed me to save the note.

If you edit it and add the comma, it will still come up with an error, but will save the comma. I had the same problem with slashs. But when I typed the sentence without it, then edited and added it, it worked!
