I tend to write long Patreon posts for my supporters, and so I regularly want to “Save as Draft” to ensure that I don’t lose any of my work.
What drives me crazy, is that after every time that I change the drop-down to save as draft, click save, the option resets to Publish!
While I can maybe understand that most people only need one save before publishing (and perhaps new users may otherwise forget where the publish button is) - having this option constantly default to “Publish” is an incredible inconvenience for me.
I have genuinely Published a post prematurely due to this UI setup, which I then had to rush to finish, because I accidentally published it before it was ready (and you only have one shot to get the content right for e-mails )
Please can you either:
Have TWO separate buttons: [SAVE DRAFT], and [PUBLISH NOW/SCHEDULE], or…
Remember and respect the last drop-down option set
(e.g. if I change it to [Save Draft], keep that option - so that I can keep pressing it until I am ready to Publish).
