Save draft button

So apparently, while writing a new post, there's an auto-save feature where every once in a while the system saves the current progress as a draft. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to manually save it, which seems kind of odd to me given that the save feature is there already. Could we have a button, maybe below the editor or next to the "Save post in Q&A" button, which allows you to save a draft when you click it?

Why does this post require moderator attention?

The draft saving is almost immediate. What would be the point? Olin Lathrop‭ 6 months ago

@Olin Lathrop Well, it's sort of also a notice to users that the function is there, since the "draft saved" notice comes and goes really quickly and isn't really noticeable unless you look out for it. And it's also for a bit of peace of mind, instead of relying on some timer to save your work, you can click a button. Moshi‭ 6 months ago

Ah, so you mean like those crossing light buttons that do nothing. Eventually the lights change so that you can cross anyway. But really, the auto-save is pretty quick. I think you'd have a hard time making a change, then scrolling down to a SAVE button and clicking it before the system did it for you anyway. Olin Lathrop‭ 6 months ago
