Description

Thanks to the recent use of sessions in CPSDocument's edit form, it is now possible to add a preview mode to the edit form that let the user preview the rendering of her changes to some document before actually checking in the changes in the ZODB.

On a the UI side, we could add a third button "Preview changes", next to "Change", and "Change and view". Once the button is clicked on, the user get a pre-rendering of the view layout below (above?) the standard edit form is a similar track ticket editing feature does.

BTW: "Change" could be renamed to "Save changes" for the sake of consistency.

According to Florent, some work is needed to make images preview work as well.

To make images work, we need a form of FileDownloader? that's keyed by the formuid and accesses the session.
