'Save as draft' + required fields

When I start filling out a new template but won't be publishing just yet, it doesn't look like I'm able to part-complete it and 'Save as draft' if there are required fields. Is this right or is something in my template misbehaving?

I think 'required fields' are required even if 'Save as Draft' is checked.

Thanks Simon — I guessed as much. Is that worth requesting as a cheeky extra feature for 2.9?

Well, I was thinking about that too. :)

But then thought it would cause problems with 'preview draft' because without required fields being filled out, the page could be broken.

Ah good point. Probably the way it is by design. Cheers :)
