If you experience a malfunction or crash in the Omnibook editor, here are the steps to resolve most issues:

  • Refresh your browser page. This will not erase your work, as it is automatically saved in real time and will be redisplayed after page refresh.
  • Check your internet connection and wait for better bandwidth if it is very low.

If the problem persists, please report it to us by sending an e-mail describing precisely the problem and attaching the following elements:

  • The URL link of your publication.
  • The type of hardware and browser you use, and their versions.
  • Screenshots, if possible, to illustrate the problem encountered.
