Defaulting the post editor to save as draft

I put together most of my BMC posts by progressively adding text to a draft in a number of sessions rather than writing all text in one sitting.

But the default editor action is Publish now, which sometimes I hit inadvertently. To prevent this, each time I open a draft I have to first click the downwrad-arrow next to Publish now and click Save as draft. Would it be possible to make this selection sticky, or change the default to Save as draft?

Hey @PaoloAmoroso, thanks for bringing this up. Please add this to Feature Requests–sounds like a good way to optimize the post editor!

This has bitten me again. I inadvartently hit the default publish button while editing an early and largely incomplete draft. Please consider raising the priority of this feature.
