[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Archival Object Edits Not Always Saving

Is it only notes that they have trouble with? I've never seen it be a 
problem, but I have noticed that notes have a second, hidden textarea 
which get updated with modifications to the visible one, presumably by 
JavaScript. Fields elsewhere, for example the Basic Information section, 
don't have this. So if they can reliably edit those, it might be 
something to do with that.
