How do I restore a post draft?

Have you written a post but need to step away and publish at a later time?

As you write and edit your posts, the Substack post editor automatically saves your drafts.

The draft history feature shows your version history of a post and also lets you revert your draft to a previously saved version.

How do I restore a draft?

1. Click on a draft and select Version History at the bottom of the page.

2. Here, you'll see versions of your post including your current version i.e. working draft which is labeled as "Latest".

3. Select a version from your history you'd like to restore and select Restore draft.


4. This version will now become your new working draft.

Note: Restoring a draft never directly affects a published version, unless you click the Publish button after restoring.
