Making copy does not save draft

Hi, I hope someone can assist me with this.


I create a copy of a page and am:

1. Unable to edit the Page Title

2. It does not save when I close it


Has anyone experienced this and know how I can resolve this


Please help!!

Thanks for the responses. I have had a look and I believe we have a very old version but waiting to confirm this, although this should not be the reason for this happening, should it? Version is 

Confluence 1000.0.0-c81848d24f9b

Will wait for response on the version question.

I have the same version as you but it works fine for me. I believe this is also the latest !

Hi @nadine.lowe

I tried this on our Confluence Cloud and it works fine for me - even if it's copied from a legacy page.

I would suggest as it not happening across all instances you contact for help :)


Thanks.I have contacted support and will await the outcome

Hello, this is really odd. 

I imagine that once you copy the page you see a "Clone of page X" page in the designated space. Does it not allow you to edit the title but allows you to edit the body but discards the changes? 
Could it be that you have some underlying automation?

I clone the page and edit it and make the required changes, except for changes to the Page title, I can remove characters but unable to type them back. 


Once done, I close it and then it usually saves in drafts, which it is not doing anymore so nothing is saved and all changes are lost.

I haven't come across this either. As Stephen suggested it might be worth bringing this to Atlassian's attention.
