Thank you for working on this. Sorry I wasn't here to comment sooner. I think this is 99% there.
Given that the "Saved" affordance more more less disappears when you've published a post, can we simply put the "Switch to Draft" button in the editor bar where the save indicator used to be? Quick and dirty mockup:
On mobile we'd keep this button in the sidebar (so you'd have to open the cog). But we'd only want one, i.e. mobile: sidebar. Desktop, only in editor bar.
What do you think?
I think it actually is — keep in mind that you see this big button ONLY when the pust has been published already. The two key actions you might want to take on such a post is "omfg i published too soon" (perhaps they disabled the publish confirm dialog) and want to just quickly unpublish, or they want to update the post.
This also means if you feel like the button is visually intrusive, you'd only see it once published, so it wouldn't bug you most of the time.
We could visually simplify it by making it into a blue link, like the "Save Draft" action?
Here's a screenshot of how it looks now. I love it:
I know @mtias has thoughts on this, but I think this is sort of perfect.
I discovered a little bug, though. If you abandon a post mid-publish, the popover returns when you press add new. Steps to reproduce:
Observe that your new post starts with the publish dialog already present.
