The ability to preview your post/comment before posting it (just like the way it is now implemented in the forums)

The post preview button is a helpful feature that lets you preview your post/comment before adding it. It helps you make sure that there are no typos and that the paragraphs are properly formatted. This [idea](http://gamebanana.com/ideas/307 "") was suggested 7 months ago by [Poi$on](http://gamebanana.com/members/1140872 ""). However, as far as I noticed, it was only implemented in forums, news and reviews sections. The submissions sections (maps, WIPs, tutorials, models...) do not have this feature. If you click on "add comment" in any submission, you get a choice between structured and free-form, but none of these 2 choices have a post preview feature. I suggest to implement this useful feature in submissions' posts, just as it is implemented in the forums sections. Thanks Will2k

    I don't believe it's a duplication. The old idea that I linked to, dates to 7 months back and is already closed (labeled "addressed"). The outcome of that idea covered only a portion of the site while other areas/sections are still without preview button.

    If the old idea was still open/unaddressed, then yes, my idea would be a duplication for an already open idea; but since it is closed, then my idea, targeted towards other sections in the site not covered earlier, would not be considered a duplication.
