I am learning to add pages in the menu. I noticed that if I save a new WordPress page as draft, I can't find it in the menu. However, if I publish it I can. Must a page be published if it is to be added to a menu? Or am I incorrect? And it is must be published in order to be added to a menu, can I m save it as draft afterwards and it will remain there?
In addition, a very good YouTube tutorial stated that WordPress posts probably would not want to be chosen for a menu. Why is that?

Thanks for your help.
