Cannot save after editing

Hello-

I've been using Inquiry SE for a while.

I find it especially useful to prepare webpages for printing, by selecting and saving only the section of the page I wish to print. Then, if necessary, I use Inquiry to edit those saved selections, deleting any remaining advertisements, etc.

But sometimes, when using Inquiry > Tools > Edit Page, I find that the Inquiry 'Save' icon and the 'File|Save' menu command are greyed-out, and Ctrl+S does nothing. In such cases, I can edit the page, but I cannot save the nice, clean edited result. I believe this problem is related to the presence of certain advertisements on the page -- advertisements designed to be persistent.

For example, see the 8-page review of the popular DI-604 router on Tom's Networking. I saved a selection from each page, highlighting only the box containing the article. I then edited (or tried to edit) each saved page, to delete any remaining advertisements.

With most pages in this article, I could save my edited selection; but with two pages, I could not. Specifically, I could not save any changes to pages 3 and 7:

I have experienced the same problem before, but this might be the best example of the problem because the same article includes pages that can be edited, and pages that cannot. I would greatly appreciate some tips for dealing with this -- or better yet, a new version of Inquiry capable of editing any page and saving the changes.

Finally, I would really like to see keyboard shortcuts for every command in Inquiry, including Tools > Edit Page, and Tools > Update Page.

Thanks a lot!

We just released the new version of Inquiry, which doesn't have this problem in our tests. Can you please try it?
