Preview or edit on a new theme will automatically publish it

Hey all,

so since Dawn 15 released, I wanted to give it a try. I downloaded it on my shop into the library and checked the preview.

Because I had it in the past once, I checked if something changed on my live store, and yes, the dawn 15 got automatically published just because I previewed it from the library.

That happened to me once with a new fully empty theme, and I was shocked when I opened my store a little after, just to see that I have that exact empty theme live published.

Anyone know how to properly test themes?

I attached a picture, if I press on both of the circled buttons, the theme will automatically release on my store.



Best regards

Hi @Lloyyd !


I tried to re-do the steps you made on testing themes and none of them automatically published. The correct way of testing how a theme looked is by clicking the three dots on the theme that you want to test "..." then, click >preview.
