in thread The ability to delete

(I prefer the previously identified route of getting preview for updates and then edit histories).

I'm curious about this....
I certainly appreciate having the preview button available when creating a node, and I miss it when when updating.

I tried a Super Search on "previewing updates" which turned up nothing. Is there a separate discussion on this elsewhere, or plans to implement it?

    Sorry, I don't have a ready pointer to a node on this subject nor a good lead on a quick way to find one.

    One reason for preview is to reduce the number of changes that get logged. I suspect that additional tricks will be required to reduce the resource requirements for logging changes to a reasonable level, though. We already have previews (and change logging) for other types of updates.
