      Description

      Hey team, we used to have a Discard Draft button in the page editor. As of 7.3 it is no longer around. I'm guessing this is because we now have the really cool feature of undo/redo. The issue I see is, undo/redo only is available for actions in the current editing session. At least that's what I've experienced. So if you make some changes to a page, don't publish them but click the back button to view the published page, the next time you go to edit the page there is no way to Discard Draft to get back to the published version. You can see what I mean in the attached gif. It's still possible to "Discard Draft" from the ellipsis menu for each page in the pages view, but this is out of the editing context and as result, feels like a pretty big UX issue to me.

      Once Page versioning is added to the sidebar, discard draft functionality would move there, but until that time I think it would be best to add this button back for 7.3.
