Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I start writing out a question, then get sidetracked, and move on to something different. Later, I come back to StackOverflow and go to write a new question, which loads the draft of my previous.

However, even after I've changed the title, tags and body to the new question, the "Similar Questions" sidebar gives me questions similar to the previous draft - it never updates.

Is this bug known about?

The "Similar Questions" sidebar items piggy-back on our draft-saving ajax calls, which occur every 45 seconds.

If all of your content has changed (especially tags), then the next draft save should update the "Similar Questions."
