Feature.  A six-year old child called me on the phone a few days ago to
get this "fixed".  I'd lent him an XO-1.5 to play with, but had
neglected necessary training.

Check that you haven't restarted a journal entry by accident.  It's easy
to do ... look at the activity ring, and if the Physics icon is
monochrome then clicking it will start a new empty instance.

If the icon is your XO colours, then it means that clicking it will
resume the top journal entry saved by that activity.

You may also right-click on the activity ring icon and select the
monochrome Start entry in the menu.  Or, in Blueberry alone, I think you
can use Alt or some other keyboard modifier.  (Can't remember, and can't
make it work yet on XO-1.5)

Oh, and you can't *not* save a journal entry.
