If there’s not a way to reproduce it, there isn’t really anything that can be done to solve it. When you tapped the “save and exit” button, was the project in editing or playing mode? Was it a new or existing draft (or does it happen on both)? Is there anything about the internet connection that you think could be causing it?
I’m really sorry about this situation – that definitely shouldn’t be happening!
Because this is happening on a Windows machine, here’s something that would be helpful in debugging the problem: right before you tap Save and Exit, open the browser Dev tools (F12), and click the network tab . Then, after you click the button, there should be a list of requests like this:
Providing that screenshot when it fails would help figure out what part of the saving process is going wrong
That’s definitely understandable, and I would also be frustrated if I lost a lot of work on a project. Since the web editor is still so new though, I would suggest saving the project regularly (although, ideally, the project would auto-save) so that if this does happen at any given point, you don’t lose that much work.
Yes it erased the whole thing which was weird. When I refreshed the page (which was what I did with the infinite loading screen thing) it showed the game from the previous time I saved it (so all progress after I saved it was lost) but I couldn’t find it in my drafts.
EDIT: THIS PART IS NOT TRUE ^^^
It could’ve just taken a long time to save though but it usually doesn’t take more then a couple seconds which is why I didn’t wait for very long
I’ve run into this consistently the past few times I’ve used the web editor. I’m using Google Chrome OS Version 107.0.5304.110 (Official Build) (64-bit) on my Acer Chromebook. I use Google Chrome as my browser.
I can either create a draft or edit an existing one, and from time to time, I’ll press play to see what the project looks like, and it will work. Then, I’ll hit play, and it will keep loading, so I will either hit save and exit from there or go back to the editor and hit save and exit, and when I reenter the project, any code that has been added since the last time the project was saved is lost
