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

This question already has an answer here:

Every time I type a question in Stack Overflow , I occasionally see a "Draft Saved" string under the question area. Does this mean that Stack Overflow has a draft saving feature? If so, how is it used?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

+1 I find a lot about this feature on meta, except for a decent faq item... you might turn this post into a faq-proposed question, and make the title more "compliant" (i.e. how does the draft saving feature work?) – fretje May 31 '11 at 7:19

It has been in place for a while. See here: Allow questions to be saved as drafts prior to posting
