Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

So I'm asking this question, written something in this box and tagged it, but I've had a thought I want to change the title. I do so, but hit enter in the process. ----resumed typing----- So I edit it again to add the rest of what I wanted to say, but in the meantime the question is incomplete and may cut off in the middle of something. (if you look at the first edit of this question, it looks pretty incomplete).

If we could have some sort of confirmation that we really meant "I'm done editing this!" it would completely cure the problem.

Granted there aren't any GOOD reasons we should press enter, but we still may be thinking we're in the main box or in a search engine text field. (same issue happens with retag box and edit summary)

Well, thankfully, it won't let you submit the question if you fail validation (title too short, body nonexistent, missing required tags on Meta). – Grace Note Jun 2 '10 at 23:40
Maybe enter should move focus it to the Body field? – George Duckett Aug 13 '13 at 11:12

there aren't good reasons for a new user messing up formatting either. I wouldn't have asked the question if the fix was non-trivial. – Gordon Gustafson Jun 2 '10 at 23:44
