    I was working on a new site for about 6 hours today, I was making great use of the save as draft button and I was getting feedback stating that my work was saved. I could see my history building up in the side pane. I took a break and came back to my computer and started work on another page, when I referenced the homepage for some info I noticed that none of my work was there, just a skeleton shell. I had a full landing page saved as a draft and it is all gone. I cannot find it anywhere, and there are no revision to my work anywhere. I have attempted to follow the documentation to return to my saved work, no luck. Please help.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi, did you have any luck finding your lost drafts? I have had the same problem. Five days of work, saving as draft as I go. The work was there until I completely logged out of my account and now there is no record of it in Elementor Revisions. Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated.

    Sorry that happened. That must be very frustrating.

    Please check the Revision History doc at https://docs.elementor.com/article/104-history

    Keep in mind that unsaved work is stored in Actions and will disappear after the session is over. Saved work will appear in the Revisions tab.

    If there really isn’t anything there in either tab, I’m not sure what can be done.
    Future updates might work better if you read this doc: https://docs.elementor.com/article/185-the-update-button-does-not-work

    But increasing memory and doing the other things mentioned in that doc won’t help retrieve past items. Still, I’d check those things out so future updates work properly.

    I had saved the page correctly and saved all the changes. restart the pc and the elementor page loads on an old version. push update by mistake. there is no previous revision. I lost the job of a whole morning.

    I had this same issue today and am very disappointed. I lost a few hours of work after closing the page and coming back to hit. I had hit save as draft and receive the small notification that it saved properly about 20 times over the 6 hours.
