 The confirmation dialogs are not intuitive as their fixed OK/Cancel
 buttons require a layer of interpretation.

 For example, to delete a draft, you get a dialog where you must read the
 explanation to understand if you should hit OK or Cancel. This is
 unintuitive and could invite errors.

 The buttons' names should directly correspond to the choice I am about to

 If this is not possible to change dialog button names, you shouldn't use a
 dialog at all, instead modifying the form to show two additional buttons
 right below the delete draft button that have appropriate text.

 The dialog that appears when you navigate away from a draft without saving
 is just as bad, although I am not sure how possible a workaround is there.
