Saving in the Confluence editor

Hi guys, I'm new to Confluence so I may have missed it, but is there a way to save your updates in the editor without leaving edit mode? If not, it would be great to see a "Save without Closing" button added to the text editor. As a technical writer I make a lot of changes and save them often while editing a single page so this would be a great feature to have. Let me know if there's currently a way to do this. thanks!

I think this is not possible. However, Confluece does save drafts every once in a while so you should not loose text - in theory.


Hi Stefan...thanks for responding. I understand that the page probably needs to be reloaded to save, but it would be nice to have the option of reloading in editing your point, maybe this isn't possible, but it would be nice. Also, I ran a test, and it is possible to lose info that isn't saved...probably not a likely real-world scenario, but it would raise my comfort level a lot if I could save easily on the fly.

Not possible I am afraid, however there are a feature request for this.

ok thanks for your response Rian

Sure no worries! Sorry that we couldn't help much

Hi What is the status of the feature request ? ( just lost a lot of work by hitting the wrong key ) Thanks in advance Regards Anders
