    Hi all, this is still on our radar and it's looking likely that we will be able to make some improvements to the Rich Content Editor that will include both an autosave/restore feature as well as a warning before you leave the page. I don't have designs yet, but we know that it's technically feasible. I will keep voters on this thread updated.
