A double question:

  1. Mostly I write answers step by step, for many reasons, new ideas, correction after comments that show me errors... But the main reason is that I can not write without interruptions. The problem is that for saving the answer, the only way I know is to publish. Publishing when you know that it is not finished is not a good think. Is there an alternative solution? (except for the first draft that is automatically saved)
  2. In the right bottom of the frame we see a little square entitled community Wiki what is it?
  • Google docs. Saves all your papers

  1. One option might be to publish, then delete your post. When you are ready to proceed, undelete it, edit and republish. Would be good to hear confirmation from a moderator before you try it with a lot of content though :-> (users with more than 10k reputation will be able to see your post but not to vote on it - so maybe good to put a quick note at the beginning e.g., "post being edited - will be undeleted when ready")

  2. Community wikis are described here on Meta Stack Exchange (a good resource for any general question on Stack Exchange)

Community wiki posts work by partly transferring ownership of the post from the original author to the community. They make the post easier to edit and maintain by a wider group of users, but they do not contribute to any user's reputation.

  • pinging @MonicaCellio - would you mind checking my proposed option 1 above? many thanks

  • Proposal 1 sounds good to me fwiw. And that comment didn't ping Monica Cellio: see meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/editing-help#comment-formatting

    After Maasse your solution to delete-undelete post is the better for me.

Instead of posting and then deleting, you can save your answer in a file on your computer, and continue editing it there. Then, when you're ready, paste it here and post.

Here is a markdown editor app for Google Chrome that will save your document in the browser.

  • It is not easy because the format of posts here are not as office or libre office or google docs.

  • I seek an intra-stack exchange solution as the draft automatically saved.

    You can still paste in the markdown code. Or use a plaintext editor such as Notepad.

  • Good point. Or use a Markdown editor. I use iAWriter on Mac and iOS for instance
