Failed token check; forcing preview.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I put a lot of effort into a New Profile for a Source and it's Repository and got this message. I failed to back-up the detailed Description and now it is toasted. Maybe when my blood pressure gets into normal range and I have learned to back-up my descriptions before I push the CREATE button I will try again in a couple of months. But you know what they say the definition of INSANITY is.....

P.S. It would be nice if the message boxes for sending a note to a Profile Manager had a bit of functionality. I wonder how many Wikitree IT folks are in straight jackets. Their achievements are monumental!!!!!!!

I'm trying to remember, ... When you scroll back down, if you still see your additions just hit save again.

If the new information is not there (I don't think it is),  all you have to do is hit your back button. That takes you back to the screen with your information. Then Save again and it all comes right.

This has been my experience as well. I have not lost text due to failed token checks.
It happened to me twice this month. I think there must be a characters typed limit. I notice a red dotted line under the entry box.   ???

Anyway my retyped profile went through. Thanks again. Bill (Elmer-1185)
