Manage your poems

Blog Posted:6/20/2019 3:43:00 AM
I hope soupers did not lose poems in the recent problems that soup encountered. A few weeks ago I picked up on a comment someone had made about saving your work. It's not well known after speaking to some fellow poets on here. In your manage poems section there is a line that says EXPORT POEMS written in blue. If you click that you have four options, pdf, word, Excel or HTML. I use word and it saves a word file to your computer with every poem you've ever written, it doesn't overwrite so I delete the old file and just keep the most up to date one. The file is only kilobyte's in size and It only saves poems, not pics or comments. It's a great feature and saves a lot of frustration and heartache.

speaking of this, ALSO print them out. I have a project I need to do today: go through all my printed out poems and organize them. A HUGE chore is ahead of me!!!

I do too Andrea, leave nothing to chance. You'll have earned a large glass if wine when your task is done. Tom

You're welcome Line, it was only emailing others that I realised that many didn't know about it. I'll continue checking the site for other gems that are on here. Tom

Your welcome Nina, I only checked it out when I saw a comment on one of the poems. A really great feature for sure. Tom

My poems are on my hard disk and as a precaution I saved them on my pen drive. I know many who lost their work because they did not copy their work. Pity.

Very wise Victor, accidents can happen with computers and the internet as we've just seen.

Many thanks Tom, I had never noticed that before. I do always save my poems in Word, but have decided to do this also - always the cautious one, haha... Kindest thoughts Ann xx

Thanks Ann, when I write a poem I export a new file and just delete the previous one, crashes happen and we have to.keep one step ahead. Tom
