Hello there @Machu !

The behavior you just described is indeed strange. For multiple empty versions of a page to exist, normally, the page was published multiple times while empty. So, if you typed out some content and then deleted it before publishing, an empty version of the page is created.

Confluence does save drafts of your content automatically:

Create, edit, and publish a page - Drafts

It might be a good idea to check the draft section under Recents in your Confluence dashboard.

Now, please allow me to ask a few questions:

  1. What do other users see when they visit the same page?
  2. What happens if you enter edit mode for the affected page?
  3. Did you publish the content before sharing the page link with the other users?

Let us hear from you!

Usually when you make changes and forget to save, Confluence does show you that there are some unsaved changes. 

Are you seeing anything by the page's title?
