Antar, sometimes you can use the 'undo' function to get back things in notepad, if you haven't closed the document. Try 1) saving the document you have in notepad, 2) pressing Ctrl+Z (or choosing undo from the menu) a bunch of times, 3) if the text reappears, select it again and copy it into another notepad, then save that into a new file, 4) close the first notepad without saving again; your document should be saved on disk and you can reopen it.

Hope it works!

Edit: glad to hear you didn't lose stuff!

Next time, I will put emphasis on what should happen.

But, at least you didn't lose anything.

ian, maybe you know the solution for this problem
i use to type my debates in word, which got the feature "count words" which also includes characters inclluding spaces.

word got exactly 10,000 characters and i use to type the tags in my document as well
when i post these exact 10,000 characters ATS cuts some out.

if i got a word document of e.g. 9,700 it is no problem, but usually i don.t have 300 characters left, only about 30 or 100

why?????

I dunno. I'm guessing it's because the ATS editor counts "line-breaks" (pressing the enter key) as a character, too. Maybe that's the difference?

Something to try: Try saving your document as a text file (.TXT). Then, right-click on it and choose 'Properties'; this should give you the exact character count (in bytes).

Hmm, I just remembered that DOS uses a weird two-character combination for line endings, so that may not be accurate...

I was quite proud (wrongly so I would think) in working that in. It was my way of calling him a moron which was hopefully obscure enough that most will just gleam over it...


Any ways...I am done with that bit of drivel.

The debates are moving along nicely...

ARGGG! All of the work I have done all day is also gone with the deleting of the changes! OMFG!

Let me first say that I had to actually type (slow at that) each word I was to copy from the pdf files because I never figured out how to copy from a pdf on my xp, windows.

Good grief, lets see 6 hours and a huge back ache later, I begin again.

Right, my first Anonymous post is up.

yup now i am getting crazy
replying to myself





@ian tried it the way you adviced

result


formated text in word: 8996 characters --> which leaves to 10,000 --> 1,004 characters


only text document (properties): 9506 byte aka characters --> leaves 494 characters

i inserted the whole text in ATS --> 780 characters left, which means:

the doctument got 9220 ATS.characters


very confusing.


@all:
sorry for statistics
it just puzzled me and still does

Nothing happens when I hit ctr + z... Do I hold them all down at once? Or one at a time? Or one after the other? And should this happen when I have only the doc open or with the file edit open or what? WHaaa Ricky!

I've never worried about character counts or any of that in any of my debates here. I've never needed 10,000 characters for a post before.

I'm not saying that's worked so well for me all the time, but still.

Antar if you closed the notepad document, I'm afraid I don't have any advice for getting that back...


Only condolence I can can offer is that it's happened to all of us; you're not alone...


 


Orange: Sounds like you're on the right track! If your word processor supports it, look for an option to use "LF (linefeed) line endings" rather than "CR+LF (carriage return + linefeed) line endings" when saving the text document. It might be phrased differently. That would make it more accurate, using only one character to represent a line-break. Personally, I do all my post-editing in a text editor (ascii text), rather than a word processor, just because it's simpler.
