Autosave Text (delisted)

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Save edited text fields to sync storage (available in syncing chrome installations), except for input type password.

Image from store Autosave Text
Description from store * Text will be saved automatically when no changes to it are made within a timeout period in seconds. Any change restarts the timeout operation. * Text will no longer be automatically saved when it shortens by more than the given number of characters from its last autosave length. Autosaving resumes when it grows within bounds again. * Text will only be automatically saved when it has at least the given number of characters. This avoids saving cleartext account numbers and the like. * All edited and input text fields are automatically saved to sync storage, except for input type password. The texts are available in all chrome installations you are signed in to when syncing is turned on. You can still use the extension when offline. Syncing commences once you go online again. *Contributing Translations* Translations of the "message" texts (keep "description" for a reference) of https://code.google.com/p/autosave-text/source/browse/autoSaveText/_locales/en/messages.json to other languages (German is already covered) would be greatly appreciated. Just submit your translation as attachment and specify the name of the language in the *Summary:* line at https://code.google.com/p/autosave-text/issues/entry?summary=translation%20to%20LANGUAGE

  • (2016-07-18) Ethelred Hardrede: The save cache fills and thats it. You don't know its not saving anymore till you need it. Then its too late.
  • (2014-10-19) Jon Catling: It has saved me loosing useful text snippets I forgot to copy (into Ditto clip util), more than once. Would benefit from some polish, eg., the icon has gone from chrome's toolbar.
  • (2014-02-27) Dena Ahmed: doesn't let you auto bring teh text into the field, you have to go to another page and then when you export the saved text it comes up garbled

    Cannot read property 'length' of undefined at chrome-extension://omgpghebcjlafeegihofjnhhmllplnie/autosave.js:114:46
  • (2016-05-26, v:14) K. Kaland: Adds report to end of every page
    "Autosaved XX characters" is getting add to the end of my pages. Can the extension just operate silently? I'm a web developer, and this could mess up testing. I don't see any way to turn this off.
  • (2015-07-28, v:14) Mike Salkin: garbled text
    Garbled text is saved as a file. This extension needs serious polishing. We need an extension similar to Text Area Cache which only works in Firefox.
  • (2014-09-29, v:14) Johan K: The extension doesn't auto-save text if a text area is added only after the document has loaded
    In my case, a textarea tag is only inserted into the document after the page has loaded. Autosave Text doesn't auto-save in these cases. (Also: to allow the extension to be found easier, I'd suggest adding the word "form" somewhere in the description, as I searched for "autosave form" initially.) Here is a test case: https://tinyurl.com/q8nnkca (you may have to reload because Chrome hates redirects to DATA: URLs). Source: <script type="application/ecmascript"> setTimeout(function() { var textarea = document.createElement('textarea'); textarea.setAttribute('autofocus', ''); //For easier testing document.body.appendChild(textarea); }, 500); </script>
