Yeah, the button only appears in where drafts are supported. Mainly when composing new content, which is arguably where they are most useful, though even then there are some exceptions.

Oh okay. It's confusing to not show the draft button under certain conditions.
Good luck getting it added either

Yes that's where it gets confusing. When using the quick editor we are in essence editing a post. Yet when we edit a post the draft button is no longer there.
You me both i thought at one point it was and is common sense it would be but nope it gets worse with articles being around it's needed.
