No preview button in reviews section

Is there a deeper reason behind the lack of a preview button in the reviews section?

I would like to check my book or module reviews before posting in the same way as other kinds of new nodes, especially since reviews usually include external references.

    I concur, and will add that it would also be useful to have a preview button for updates to one’s own nodes.

    In the meantime, there is an obvious workaround: Clone the PerlMonks tab; in the cloned tab, navigate to your private scratchpad; compose and submit there until happy with the result; cut-and-paste back into the original tab, and make the final submission. A little cumbersome, but workable.

[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/

[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
