I've accidentally deleted my words! How do I get them back?

Writing is a delicate process, and it can be devastating to lose your words. Whether it’s through accidental deletion, regretting a purposeful deletion, or an unexpected device error, losing your words is still a terrifying prospect.

But there’s no need to worry! Novlr automatically saves versions of your chapters and uploads them to our servers.

These saves are also shown as versions that you can access, view, and load from the Novlr desktop app at any time.

In the top left-hand corner of the writing screen, click on the time stamp with the tick next to it.

This will load your version history in a new menu on the right-hand side of your screen. Once this has loaded, you will see all versions of your work that have been saved. If you need to restore a previous version, click on it, then hit restore.

For an extra layer of backup, Novlr Pro subscribers also have the option to sync Novlr with Dropbox and/or Google Drive.
