#9097 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

preview button vs. already existing article

On wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=... when editing an _already
existing article_, the "preview" button does more harm than good.
All it does is give one a one time preview. When one clicks BACK, we
are back in the (HTML) editor with our changes gone. One must hit
Update Post if one wants ones changes saved.

Preview triggers an autosave and should open in a new window or tab.

The preview "button" is actually a link with the target set, which will open a new window. It will only open in the same window if you have your browser settings to not open links in a new window.
