- Does this function work? If so what is the trick to use it?
- Is there a trick for working on draft copy of a posting before being published and made public?

I see on my User Control Panel page a Manage PM drafts button.

I see that button, but I've never used it. I assume it's for saving a PM message (private message) through the internal DW mail system as a draft message. I'm not sure if it works since I've never tried it, but one thing you can do is send someone a PM and it remains in the 'Outbox' until they pick it up. After they pick it up it goes to your Sent mail folder. In the meantime, while it's still in the Outbox, you can click on it and edit it, if needed.
I've never used it either.
For long posts, I think the best idea is to work in your favourite text editor (Word or whatever - but saving as .rtf avoids potential formatting problems at the next step) and then simply copy and paste it into the DW window. You may then need to fix or add links, but that's relatively straightforward.
