It happened already more than once to me, that I accidentally clicked on the Add Another Answer button when I wanted to save my edit:

Add Another Answer

I assume this is because in the "normal edit" the Save Edit button was just the last grey box at the bottom, and now it is the second to last.

What do you think about hiding the Add Another Answer button while editing? It would make sense from a usability point of view. Or is it just something I (we) have to get used to?

    When you are editing somebody else's question, you see both the text fields to edit the question, and to add your answer in the same page. – kiamlaluno Jul 12 '11 at 23:00

I was not really sure about this suggestion, having just implemented it, I have to say I totally agree with it.

It simplifies things.

  • my pleasure :) it was good suggestion! – waffles Jul 18 '11 at 7:55

This has happened to me a few times as well. I catch myself before losing any work, but it's annoying.

I don't think disabling the button is the correct solution. I do think re-coloring it or moving it to a different location might help.
