Mandatory Meta Fields

Plugin is working very fine but i want to know if there is any way we can make some meta fields mandatory for publishing the post using this plugin so that if required field is not set, post should be saved as draft and published.

Best Ever Plugin For Metaboxes

I know how to create the meta boxes but your plugin have made the process more simpler and easy. If you have technical knowledge the plugin works great for you. I think metabox for selecting font icons is left only 🙂

Best MetaBox Plugin on the Market!
