Steps to reproduce:
- Start replying to a topic (or post).
- Navigate to another topic.
- Hit the reply button (to topic or post).
Hit the cancel button.
At this point, this popup appears:
Clicking “Yes, abandon” deletes the draft, clears the reply box, and changes the reply target (or closes the reply box if you clicked “cancel”). Clicking “No, save draft” keeps the draft, but still clears the reply box and changes the reply target (or closes the reply box if you hit “cancel”).
Is this behavior when clicking “No, save draft” a bug? I put this topic in #feature because it wasn’t clear to me if this was intentional or not. If not, I guess it’s a bug. If it was intentional, I think there is a huge usability problem with this approach. Ideally, I think it should just retarget the draft when you click a new reply target (just like it would do if you clicked a new reply target within the same topic). But at a minimum, there should be a way to cancel the operation. Right now, the only way to cancel your action (that is, if you don’t want to clear the reply box) once the dialog has opened is to hit ESC, which of course doesn’t work on mobile. Clicking out of the dialog box also doesn’t cancel the operation, and there is no
Cancel button available.
