Weird trick / useful bug

Everyone knows by now that you can fake a draft mode by composing a toot, setting its privacy to direct, not @-ing anyone, and clicking "toot!". Then delete+redraft later to edit it again and choose a more public privacy setting or @ someone.

Did you know that if you press reply while editing one of these and say "yes, discard", it will keep any images and image descriptions from the draft, and put them on the reply instead?

@Gargron please don't implement a proper draft mode, this bug is far more useful

My instance is using tootsuite/mastodon v3.2.0 as I write this, just in case it didn't work for you

And that's a reply button belonging to an unrelated toot, in case it's not obvious from what I wrote.

@Manuel15 @Gargron Relevant xkcd but I hope it stays in until somebody designs a decent draft / post later feature. Yeah, I know.

The second weirdness probably works with other "overwrite the message you are currently composing?" workflows, come to think of it. And it's fairly daft and really unintuitive. Bet somebody starts relying on it though!
