Lost work

Hey, I've just lost a couple of hours of really good work. 
I've checked out page history and the version does not exist. Previous work also does not exist in 'view changes'.

Hi @Jess Beames , I am unsure what could have cause the lost work but maybe you are aware of the actions that resulted in this most unfortunate issue. While that doesn’t help with recovery it may with future avoidance. Unfortunately if there is not an open browser tab with your text nor a version in the page history then it may truly be lost. However, please check your Drafts section - click on Recent in menu bar then drafts.

Thanks Jack, it's quite unusual and hadn't experienced issues like this on Confluence. I also checked drafts - but it seems only unpublished documents are listed here.

it seems it is not recoverable then. strange. there are browser extensions that save browser input you might wish to consider for future.
