Weird #mastodon trick / useful bug

Everyone knows by now that you can fake a draft mode by composing a toot, setting its privacy to direct, not @-ing anyone, and clicking "toot!". Then delete+redraft later to edit it again and choose a more public privacy setting or @ someone.

Did you know that if you press reply while editing one of these and say "yes, discard", it will keep any images and image descriptions from the draft, and put them on the reply instead?
