Can Autosave be disabled while editing? Answered
Can autosave be turned off in the editor? I'd rather not have anything be "published" as I'm still typing and editing. I think it's better to hit the "save" button when I'm done.
Another reason I have this suggestion/complaint:
I'd noticed that some of my recent edits have been mysteriously reverting back to old versions and couldn't figure out why this was happening. I've come to the conclusion that by accident (maybe due to inadvertent swipe of the touchpad or mouse, my browser went back a page in history, so it brought up my previous version of a page I was editing. The frequent auto-save saved this previous edition of my page, wiping out all my edits!
This is obviously really annoying, and could be resolved if the editor didn't autosave and just saved when we tell it to.
Also, what's the difference between save and publish? I understand the difference when you've never published a instructable yet, but once you've published it once, you never have to publish again do you?
