I have'nt had this bug until today but I see it has happened before: http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/125340/scratch-pad-bug - please help?

I have saved so much code that I'm lost without it - I cannot "edit" my scratch pad ...!?!

I put in some wiki-markup and it showed up a link as expected.  And it did save ok... except that it seems to require you to hit the reload button at the top to get the edit button to appear and replace the Save changes button The Scratch PadI does in my experience, work with markup language but doesn't require it.

I want it to go back to a text version - how do I do it?
Thanks for answering Dave ...:-)

I see - in the past when I saved my scratch pad edits it would only save the edits in text - now it transforms it into markup text as if it was a profile - In order to keep the text ready so that I can easily copy / paste I now have to keep the scratch pad open in edit mode - is this something new?

Hi Philip. Sorry for the confusion. I just announced the change here: http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/252350/you-notice-the-scratch-pad-changes-your-navigation-home-page
I saw the announcement, but, I think the impact of it did not hit me until this morning.   Like Philip, I used my scratch pad to keep all my common categories, etc, for a copy and paste as I work profiles...now, I am going to have to figure out another way.
