Isn't this what ModelAdmin.save_on_top is for?

Replying to ramiro:

Isn't this what ModelAdmin.save_on_top is for?

I would say ModelAdmin.save_on_top solves the issue when the edit/change page fits in two screen of height. However, IMHO, it's quite common to have the edit/change pages spans over that when you have 2 or more inline formset for example.

I think this ticket would be a good candidate for django-ux.

Floating things aren't good for accessibility, especially on mobile devices.

Even if save_on_top doesn't suffice, this can be implemented with custom js/css, the admin provides hooks for this purpose.
