FIX: Google Apps “A server error occurred and we were unable to save your last change”

FIX: Google Apps “A server error occurred and we were unable to save your last change”

Today I was working on a Google Spreadsheet with my Google Apps for work account from work, I was adding multiple images to it. Suddenly an error appeared:

“There was a problem, a server error occurred and we were unable to save your last change. We are restoring your spreadsheet to its previous state.”

The spreadsheet was not getting the latest changes saved and entered into an endless loop of the same error popping up over and over again.

I tried several things I came up with, plus some other suggestions I found online. These are the things I tried and didn’t solve the issue:


How to fix Snagit to correctly paste images in GMail

Sometimes you want to paste a captured image with Snagit into a Gmail new mail and you just see an empty box instead of the image. The problem is the depth of the image captured by Snagit, and here is how to fix it.

For existing images you already captured you can do the following

In Snagit Editor (while watching the image you captured and can’t paste in Google Mail), go to the tab “Image” and then go to “Color Effects” then choose “Color Depth” and then change the drop down menu to “True Color 24 bit”.  Now you should be able to paste the images without any trouble in Gmail.

If you want to make this change permanent for all the images you capture

Go to the capture profile settings, choose the little arrow beside “effects” and then go to “Color depth” and choose “Custom color depth“, set it as “True Color 24 Bits” and to end click Ok.

From now onward, every image you paste in Google Mail will work.

Android´s biggest problem: their manufacturers

My first and (for now) only Android phone was the first Samsung Galaxy S, at that time (a couple of years ago) the hardware specs where not as powerful as they are now, but still Android 2.3 was profiling as very nice mobile operating system.

Today, statistics by IDC show that the market is 75% Android, 17,3% iOS. But this could change very fast.

Cloud StorageFrom month to month I check several cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive. I test them and check about any new functionality their developers might add. But still, there is not one service on the market that really rules.

Companies like the two mentioned on the previous paragraph might be more well known than others but still they are missing several features and flexibility.

The following is a list of must have´s for a cloud storage service to really lead the market:

1 – Not everything in one folder:
I have several hard drives con my computers and work on a certain way with them. I don’t want to change the way I work to be able to use a service. Dropbox works very well but having to put everything into one folder really makes me sick.
