I know there was a big upgrade recently where subtitles were lost, but also being restored. I haven't really seen any missing subtitles, but instead, I've noticed that all my subtitles are missing the line breaks that I put in (I originally used SHIFT-ENTER to put line breaks and it's been displaying perfectly on 2 lines until now)
So a line that looked like this originally:
There were 3 little pigs
who lived on a farm in Houston.
Now looks like this:
There were 3 little pigswho lived on a farm in Houston.
The line break between "pigs" and "who" is gone and the 2 lines are now squished together and displayed all on one line.
Will these be restored somehow from a backup?
I tried going back to an old video which lost its line breaks and tried manually adding them back in (with SHIFT-ENTER).
I found that if I just added the line breaks back in and pressed save, none of the changes were saved and was as if I hadn't edited it at all, no new revision was created and the subtitles still on a single line.
It only saved a new revision if I changed or added new letters into the subtitle and pressed save. And in that case, line breaks were recognized.
So does that mean that Amara doesn't recognize just adding line breaks as a change to the subtitle and cause for a new revision to be created? I'm pretty sure that I've just added a line break or two before and it saved properly, not sure why it doesn't now.

July 26, 2013: the issue is also and still present in the Spanish Subtitles created 06/06/2013 by Yatzil Gomez of Testimonio viuda de Eleuterio García Rojas, Celendín .
July 28, 2013: the issue is also present in the English subtitles of Capitalism and Socialism: Crash Course World History #33 , which Anne H. mentioned today in the Subtitles missing spaces? topic.
Capitalism and Socialism: Crash Course World History #33 presents another glitch possibly caused by the June 29, 2013 upgrade: the video language is not assigned. See Video language selection deleted after (by?) the June 29, 2013 upgrade .
If more come up, I'll add them here.
