computer frustrationCanvas currently** does NOT have any ‘autosave’ feature.
So ANY network glitch hiccup or timeout that drops or refreshes the connection (which happens FREQUENTLY WITH WIRELESS/CELL CONNECTIONS) will wipe ALL text you have been typing!
(Note: Many online programs have the same issue).BE SAFE — type up ALL of your long form text assignments in a word processor and then save and copy & paste (or attach if your instructor has activated it in your Assignment or Discussion ) into CANVAS!

IT TAKES LONGER TO RETYPE WORK YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE!
Microsoft Word, (as well as word processor etc.) do auto backups and offers GREAT drafting/editing features that will help you improve your work as well.
ALL enrolled NC State students have FREE access to Word & other Office Applications.
**NOTE:  Canvas does have a community feature request to add a ‘save draft text’ option YOU can vote up beginning October 7, 2015:
