If you write a blog using WordPress, be very careful not to accidentally delete the new post you are working on. This is all too easy to do – simply hit the ‘Esc’ key and the entire post vanishes!!
And don’t think that Autosave will help. All it will do is save the blank composing window that you are staring at, neatly erasing all the precious text it autosaved 30 seconds beforehand.
I consider this to be a design flaw. In fact, two flaws; why does the Escape key delete everything anyway?? Grr. From now on I shall hit the ‘Save Draft’ button regularly. I suggest that you do the same.
