If you click the leftmost button, you’ll get a dropdown menu for importing and exporting pads that contains Permanent’s Etherpad integration.
Clicking “Enable” under the Permanent.org logo will make your pad save to your Permanent archive after successive edits to the pad. You must click enable on each individual pad you create to save it to your Permanent archive.
Your monthly subscription rate with Coil does not depend on how many etherpad versions you save to Permanent. You will never be charged more than $5 per month from Coil. This works out because Etherpad files are extremely small.
Finding Your Saved Etherpad Documents
Once you’ve enabled syncing, navigate back to your Permanent archive at https://staging.permanent.org/app/myfiles.
You’ll notice a new “Etherpad” button on the left side of your archive. Clicking that button will bring you to your saved pads.
Every time you make a change to your pad, the revised document will appear in your Permanent archive. This means that each set of revisions will save an additional document in your Archive. These documents will save as simple text documents with a format of “document_title.rX,” where “r” stands for revision and “X” is a number associated with the revision. The higher the number, the newer the synced document will be.
