I am experiencing a bug with typing in article properties in the DPS dashboard online. Here's what happens:
I typed in the title for the first page. Because this was a cover, the only article property it needed was a title. After that I clicked over to the second page, and I typed in a title for that. This was a TOC so it also only needed a title.
Later I discovered that as soon as I clicked over to the next page to give it article properties, the property on my previous page disappeared. It took a while to discover that the only way to make the properties stay was to put something in every single available property: title, byline, kicker, description, and tags. So for each page, I have to type in what I need, and then tab into the next entry, and type in a blank space (for the ones that, for example, don't have a byline).
I work on many different publications, all with different ID's, and it happens to me in every single one.
If anyone else is experiencing this, please let me know. If this problem could at least be made known, maybe we could see a fix in the future?
We are aware of this issue and there is a workaround. It just so happens to affect all of the text fields in the article thumbnail view and not just the one for Title. If you press the Tab key to change the active text field selection, and then click to the next article your data will be saved.
Look for the fix in an upcoming release. Sorry this one slipped through the cracks. Thanks for your dedication!
