You asked, @mmff, so here's the answer: To edit a straw,
- Locate the straw in the company section, not in the newsfeed. The easiest way to do that is to click on the Straw's #title in the newsfeed ("Latest Insights") - which should take you there. The newsfeed/latest insights is what you get on the "Home" screen - and although you can view your straws there, you can NOT edit them there, you need to edit them by locating that straw in the company section.
- In the top right hand corner of the straw there will be three dots arranged vertically - to the right of your Strawman.com username & icon. Click on those three dots.
- If the straw was created by you, you will be given two options, being (1) Edit Straw, and (2) Delete Straw. Click on "Edit Straw".
- Edit your straw.
- Once finished, scroll down and click on the big orange "UPDATE" button at the bottom.
- All done.
If you simply edit the Hashtag (title) of the straw, then any likes or dislikes you have should be retained. However, if you make any other changes, the likes/dislikes (upvotes/downvotes) count will be reset to zero. That is the reason why I never give you any upvotes (any votes) for your straws that are full of question marks where there should be dots (for bullet points). I've been waiting for you to edit those straws to fix those errors. If you copy and paste from a .pdf file (or some other file formats), any unknown characters will be displayed in your straw as question marks. The most common ones are the hyphen ("-"), so "semi-annual" would come out as "semi?annual", and the dots at the start of each line of a bullet list. Always check these before you save, and if you miss one or two, edit them quickly before you start receiving upvotes for the straw. Hope that helps.
