How Do I Submit Literature on Eclipse?

How Do I Submit Literature on Eclipse?

Now that DA no longer allows submissions from either html or txt, the only choices are PDF or the 'official literature editor' which appears as the 'literature' button after I press the green Submit button in the upper right corner. As test, I tried typing a couple paragraphs, but when I tried logging off, the only options I seemed to have were to either cancel, and thus lose what I had already typed, or leave the computer on DA until finished, which does not make any sense. Can someone tell me step-by-step how to add to a story in progress as time allows without losing what I have already done, until the story/chapter is ready to submit? The seeming lack of any guidance beyond a notation 'this is a draft' is really no help if DA expects me to even voice support for Eclipse, which has had so many issues I have lost track. At least other members have been able to help me with some Eclipse-related issues.

I'm Starting To Write Again, But...

...until Deviantart management either allows submissions from txt files again or I learn how to copy txt files to PDF, I doubt I will be submitting much in the way of literature any time soon on DA. Although DA has a Literature link after one presses the Submit button near the upper right corner, there appears to be no means for saving a work in progress, so anything submitted that way must be done all in one sitting, not very practical if a story or chapter is at all lengthy!

Did Deviantart suddenly change the background from pale/classic green to black/purple today, or did I accidentally hit a button?
