When I write on this forum, very often I get the following prompt when I click the Post Reply button:

An auto-saved message draft for this topic from "February 3, 2020 4:54 PM" has been found. Would you like to continue with this Draft or delete it?

How to get rid of it? I definitely know that I do not have any drafts because I posted all my messages.

I admit that the same problem may appear on our forum too. Is there a setting to control this or anything that can help us in this situation?

If you use the latest release 2.30.07 then the issue will not appear in your forum

Well, I started to write posts on our forum. Today I was composing a post and the 'auto save' notification appeared several times while I was doing this. Then I decided to preview the post. A dialog with two buttons telling me that I have a draft message appeared. I do not remember which button I clicked, but all this ended with showing me a half of the text I typed (an earlier version of my post).

I tried to reproduce this but no luck. As for me, this new auto-save system is unstable and works with issues hard to reproduce. Is there a way to configure it and turn it off if required?

I wasn't able to reproduce it. But i can add a setting in the next version to disable the autosave feature.

Yes, add it, please. I've encountered various problems with auto-saving on this forum and on mine, so having an option to turn auto-saving off would be nice.

I've just wanted to post a reply into a forum thread I answered in today and suddenly got this 'auto-save draft' dialog again:

And can you change the texts of those OK/Cancel buttons? They can mislead the user and they can delete their entered text by pressing "not the right button". I would use the texts Continue and Delete to avoid any misunderstanding.
