while i'm editig a Confluence site, changes on the text of the site disappear and i need to do the same changes again.

The text on the site is from a Word import.


Thanks in advance!

I am experiencing this as well in Edge.

Hi @Sebastian Pichler 

Apparently, if you have some HTML Content this is the reason for text to disappear.

Can you try adding the content manually to a new page instead of importing it from Word and then editing it

Hey @Pramodh M 

The text is not the problem, if i put some spaces between the text or if i change the color of the text to green or anything like that for example, the spaces disappear and the text is black again.

I have the same/similar problem. It's intermittent, so it's difficult to trace any particular steps to reproduce it. 

I typically have multiple confluence pages open in various Chrome tabs. I open a page for editing, add text and make edits for ~1 minute, and then right before my eyes the work I've done disappears and the page reverts to the same state it was in when I first opened it for editing. 

None of my teammates (we're all Confluence admins) have experienced the problem.

I have this happening too! This is happening in Edge for me. This is very frustrating.

This happens to me as well in Chrome. I can add new text to a page or a new row to a table and sometimes even some text in one of the new cells in that new row. Then the update vanishes. A second try of the exact same update has so far always worked. This happens on multiple different pages too.
