Currently, when editing subdocuments loaded in a masterdocument, the changes made to the subdocuments are not saved at subdocument level. This would be a very nice to have feature.

Hm, do you want autoupdate view of master document if you change any subdocument?
Do you know that there is icon Update in Navigator in master document to update of all info in master document?

This is not about updating any of the subdocuments. I know about being able to update the subdocuments, but this comes with some impact on content flow if you have 5000 pages worth of subdocuments loaded in the masterdocument.
This is a feature request for being able to save edits made to a subdocument rather than opening the subdocument itself and editing it separately, in which case, if you edit many subdocuments while having at the same time the masterdocument loaded with many subdocuments, LibreOffice becomes unstable and prone to crashing.
I think this is wont fix, cause master just gets info from all >>>linked<<< subdocument and shows it all together in one document.
Implementation of your enhancement will be very very hard, IMHO
I agree with the OP - we have to avoid any situation where user input is not saved and lost. But the request likely depends on the implementation and maybe another solution is to disable editing.
Now there is no situation where user input is lost because a user can't edit subdocuments in the master document directly.
The bug opener requests a real enhancement so that also subdocuments can be edited in master document with loaded subdocuments. Now you have to open the subdocument separately, then you must save the file and then you have to reload the subdocument in the master document. Little bit inconvenient indeed.
