Let’s just say that one starts typing a new message. And then, for whatever reason, one decides that one does not want to post it.

How does one undo the message so that it is not posted?

This is a test to see how to do it ... or undo it.

Well that didn’t work.

Le’ts just say that I hit the “Reply to Thread” button by accident and a new window opened. The new window had the original message ready for my reply. And let’s just say that I really don’t want to reply to the thread.

I tried hitting the “back” button and was able to back out without posting. But when I reopened the thread to look at it, the same window awaiting my reply still was there.

How to get rid of an unwanted open reply window?

Still working on it.

Delete all that is in the reply box (I use the back space key) and then click on done and exit the thread.

BTW, Control+A and then "Delete" also works, at least on a PC.

Steve,

Again many thanks.

For those of us in the Ipad world, I can’t find “Done” anywhere.

What I do find is the “Gear” icon immediately above my typing space. After deleting all the text I hit the gear icon and the message disappears.

I tried it, problem solved.

Thanks again.

The gear tool turns off the WYSIWYG behavior. Getting of an image is a side effect sometimes. If you have attachments, you need to use the delete function on those. Nest to the gear icon is a diskette icon that is for recalling a draft or deleting a draft.

To be really sure it is clean, you should also delete the draft that is saved automatically every few seconds.
