Yeah, I tried to publish the first part, and it disappeared once, saying I didn't have the bio filled in. Fine I filled in the bio, and then the other slots came up, so I filled them in.
I had assumed that the first time they disappeared it was a mistake on my part. That's why I hit "Preview" the second time -- so I would not lose them!!!
I never imagined that Etsy would not be functional. So, no, I didn't save it in a text file.
