Save buttons (page / database) -- confusing situation

Filip Callewaert September 28, 2023

I quite thoroughly work in databases and bumped into this annoying situation from time to time: 
when I work in a page's edit-mode and also involve the database in my work, numerous times I found myself saving the page, without first saving the database, losing all changes I made in the dbase <frustration>. I did not seem to learn the lesson. Slowing down to better understand why I make this mistake, I made some screenshots, and indeed this is confusing. When you scroll the database down, sometimes and sometimes not, there is a floating database-menu. It is not consistent. When it does not show up: my "bijwerken"-button (save) is the one of the page, not the database. And of course I click that button, but then I lose all changes in the database. Several times. When I scroll up, then I see the two save buttons (but even still then I make mistakes in pushing the page save button instead of the database save button).Scherm­afbeelding 2023-09-28 om 16.01.06.pngScherm­afbeelding 2023-09-28 om 16.01.10.png Grrr. 

Sometimes I ask myself: why asking all these efforts of the user, why not auto-save every input and change in the database?

Hey @Filip Callewaert - I totally hear you (and have lost a lot of content myself and kicked myself for forgetting to press save). The Beta version will fix this problem and autosave all the changes you make to the database automatically!

The autosave is really a must, I think! thx!
