Word graveyard

saves deleted words and paragraphs in cases you need them again

This applet works in the background, and acts like the recycle bin. But on a small scale; just for things you delete while word-processing that you then realize you need again.

Click the tombstone icon on the command bar to pop up the graveyard; then just select the deleted text and copy-and-paste it back into your document.

A standard feature in Word, Netscape, IE (when you press Delete while a text box has the focus), and other quality programs.

An example of a Key Logger. http://www.blazingtools.com/bpk.html
Not an endorsement. This one has a "free version". [Amos Kito, Oct 04 2004]

Change or delete even an entire directory, and get it all back. [Amos Kito, Oct 04 2004]

       Doesn't the Office clipboard do this already?

       Apparently not. (Maybe if you always used Cut to delete things.)

       A "key logger" [link] will save all text. Depending on how much you type, it might work well.   

       For a word processor, "Go Back" [other link] remembers previous file saves. You can pull up an older version of the same file name when needed.

       When I used to write papers on the UNIX at school, if you lost stuff you could recover it. The recovery went one key at a time, so you saw the entire growth of the paper flash before you - additions, deletions, blocks appear and disappear - it was cool.
