Can't add project instructions Answered

I am probably doing something wrong, but when I try to add instructions in the edit window all the words go away once I save and get out.

Also, when I add instructions, then add a step, the instruction from the first step is in the edit window.  If I change the danything in the edit window it gets changed for all steps.

Can you tell me  what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

It means that it may not work so well if you're using Internet Explorer.

They seemed to have rolled out a new editor today. Could you specify your operating system and browser you are using so they can see where the trouble is?

Did your title include an apostrophe? Apparently non-letter characters in titles are giving the new editor indigestion.

I just tried to edit an Instructable within the Chrome browser and it worked. But still can't edit in IE.

Also, why can't I delete one of my unpublished Instructables? There seems no provision made for doing that!

In "edit" mode, hover over the "more" menu, and select "delete" from the drop-down menu.
