Preview before Publishing

Right now, when I’m publishing, I have to manually right-click each new file and click ‘Open File’. This closes the Publish modal to open the note. I then confirm that its a note I intend to publish, and re-open the publish modal, select it, and confirm publishing. I then pick a new note to review.

This could all be much simpler if from the publish modal I was able to open a preview that didn’t close the publish modal. Maybe a pop-over, like the diff modal for changed notes, or a sidebar view, or an inline expand/collapse, or just a hover-over preview. Something so that I can quickly select which notes I want to publish without doing them one at a time.

This has been requested before. I agree; hover preview works nearly everywhere else, including on the published site, and I believe this is a place it is sorely missed.
