Using Inspera

Important: Chrome Bug with Inspera

A bug has been identified with version 90 of the Chrome browser which is causing one specific issue within Inspera. You may find, when typing directly into the Inspera text editor, that if you backspace to delete a comma at the end of a line of text, the comma is deleted along with the entire paragraph of text. To get around this issue, you can use the Undo button on the Inspera toolbar, or Ctrl+ Z, to retrieve your text.     

Updating your Chrome to the latest version, or using a different browser (Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, or Apple Safari) should get around the issue.
