SOLVED Boards do not persist well
From a support ticket:
I see that boards are stored as json files but the app does not seem to re-load a board.
Is there a syntax I should know for the link?
The stored board is named board-object-storage-plan.json but the URL is https://whiteboard.officetime.uk/boards/object-stores-plan#172,97,0.9
i.e. it interprets it
Without the final #172,97,0.9 at end of URL, it does not seem to load.
I have to restore from backup to force it to find/load the board again.
Any thoughts ?

@nebulon I had a reply from the software developer as below
how to save / exit a board ? seems only option is to close browser window
DEV : Yes, the board is always saved, every change is immediately persisted. You can close it when you want and you won't lose anything.
how to open a previous board ? seems only way is to reload url
DEV : You can also type the board name in the text field on the main page.
So it seems it is not a bug as such, maybe a design feature.
I can live with this, but I think most "normal users" will find it confusing.
Especially closing the window to exit - seems counter-intuitive and most users will fear losing their work.
But nothing to lose sleep over.
ah great thanks for the explanation and details. Good for other users if they hit the same issue/question.
