What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Would it be possible to draft a post/questions, as this could be good in creating, editing and formatting questions prior to posting them.

I have searched the meta and found this post in reference to this feature, but that post has a tag, but I can't see anywhere such feature.

Probably I am missing it somewhere. I don't see it on the ask question page. Where can I draft it and save for future posting?


From the answer: Single draft saving is present.

I am requesting for multiple draft saving feature. Can we forward this as a new feature-request?

Your edit makes your question a duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/141834/…, which was closed as a duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/73148/list-all-my-drafts (but I'm not certain it actually is). – ben is uǝq backwards Aug 27 '12 at 20:53
@Ben It definitely is. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/73148/list-all-my-drafts – bobobobo Aug 28 '12 at 23:51
I added a suggestion to the original feature request – bobobobo Aug 29 '12 at 0:05

Drafts are auto-saved. Try this:

  1. Click Ask Question
  2. Write something into the question field
  3. Click outside the field to blur, and wait a few seconds (not sure this is needed)
  4. Close the window
  5. Open the site in a new window, and click ask question again. Your draft should be there.

I downvoted because the user was asking for multiple draft saved. – Revious Mar 27 '14 at 18:32
Yes, but he only made that clear after I answered. But okay, I can live with that downvote :P – bfavaretto Mar 27 '14 at 23:35
@bfaretto: sorry.. i can't edit the downvote anymore. I apologize. – Revious Mar 27 '14 at 23:37
Don't worry, @Revious. I should have edited the answer after the clarification from the OP anyway. I guess I deserved a downvote for that ;) – bfavaretto Mar 27 '14 at 23:38

From the accepted answer to the question:

If you start asking a question, but do not successfully submit, you will see your last saved question draft the next time you visit the ask a question page.

The feature is not for multiple drafts, but a draft for the current (and only) question.
