But presumably you could use the save draft button to hold onto genuine wip. Or is that cleared too? I'll do a test draft.I don't use the in built editor so those changes don't impact me, but just for a counter-point, I sometimes have draft posts in the works for a day or two, occasionally for up to a week while I check details or wait till I have enough time to edit it properly.
Anyway, I'm not supposed to be hanging around here for now so I'll waddle off again...
Certainly accidental reply is the most frequent cause of unwanted drafts, for me at least. However it's not uncommon for me to start a reply and then think better of it. @cold wombat's suggestion about delete and save (erase?) button is good if it is practical.The problem is like & reply proximity, which I improved on mobile recently.
Probably should do same and increase separation of like and reply on desktop and then we can increase drafts to say six hours or even revert to 24.
