Lost edit save action in questions with some text element

@evan - Hope you had good Labor Day,

Hitting a strange problem after I fixed some typo’s in a question, I hit preview button to then get to the save button. The button failed to run its action. I ended up having to cut the text pasting into a text editor to clean it then paste it back. I have the original text in a file but I can’t paste it here.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@danj I’m pretty sure I know what the issue is, but can you link me to an example of a post that doesn’t save correctly so we can test a solution?


@evan - I'll email the text. I haven't hit this before so I don't have a Q to aim you to that has the issue any more


@evan - Any clues on what it was?


I haven't investigated it just yet. I just found the post (https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/5142...) and will be poking it today.


Keep in mind I cleaned the text in the question.

I’ve noticed a few Q’s which have excessive line returns. Been cleaning them up as well.
