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?

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.

  • Yes, but he only made that clear after I answered. But okay, I can live with that downvote :P

  • 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 ;)

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.
