Has anyone worked out how the delete draft button works.

A few times I have started writing and then decided not to post, but when I select Delete Draft from the drop down next to preview, nothing happens.

I end up having to delete everything I have written, plus any quotes, other wise it just stays there?

I've just had a go and got the same result.

I looked under the bonnet and there's a message sent to the server. The response was "Draft deleted successfully". I also noticed another message sent every 30 seconds or so with the message "Draft saved successfully".

So I assume that drafts are saved on the server for each user, and the delete draft will delete it from the server. A further assumption is that there's a problem in deleting the text from the box on your screen, although there are no errors for this.

I’ll see if it’s an option in the settings
