This will happen if you drag a link from the embedded browser into a workpad, since Awasu doesn't know the drag is coming from a feed item, all it's given is the URL. But if you right-click on an item in the item pane (the list of items in the top part of the window) and choose Send to|Workpad
, Awasu will store the item content in the workpad as well.

For this, you're better off using Awasu's archiving functionality. Channels can be configured to keep content for a certain amount of time before purging it, so even if the blogger removes their post, it will remain in your Awasu archive. The archive time can either be set globally (Program Options, Archive page, Keep content for), or per-channel (Channel Properties, Advanced page, Keep content for).
Awasu can also be configured to download the linked-to content
, which is not always the same as the content in the feed, and keep that for a specified amount of time as well.

Mostly better editing features. Workpads are a heavily-used feature that are used by people to aggregate selected content, annotate and then distribute it e.g. a weekly newletter, automated daily reports of interesting content found, etc., so any new features would be aimed at improving this process. But new features are very much driven by user requests, so if there's something you think would be useful, let us know.

Ah, I see what you mean. IIRC, I went nuts trying to get tooltips to appear on those buttons but the GUI toolkit Awasu uses just wouldn't do it and I eventually gave up
The icons are the same as those in the main toolbars and the Edit
main menu so you can find out what they do there. Or just click on them and see what happens, none of them do anything destructive
