Prompt a Draft Save? Draft Save Interval?

Is there a hotkey or some other method to save a draft of a page while working on it? Otherwise, what is the automatic draft save interval?

There is a way to trigger a draft. Hit Preview. This always saves a draft as long as you have changes.

Also note that there is a bug at the moment with displaying the Draft Saved message. It only shows up on large browsers: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-30746

I've added the "Preview" wordaround to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-1632 too.

Thanks. In addition, there is no way to elect to save a draft. Here is the feature request for that ability: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-1632

Looking at the AJS API I see AJS.Confluence.Editor.Drafts.save(); You might be able to hook into that and code your own button.

Hi,

don't know why but the command mentioned above and also this version...

AJS.Confluence.Editor.Drafts.save({ forceSave : true }); // c.f. editor_plugin_src.js

...does not work, I always get "Error saving draft". Any ideas?

This is totally not ideal, but you could set your interval low, and then just close the browser tab without hitting save or cancel to "save a draft".
