I agree with the moderator, i have an Immigration adviser that will represent my British Citizenship application this December, i booked my flights to leave after they submit my application, he said that i am free to travel after my application has been lodged because my ILR don’t expire, so this doesn’t apply to me. I guess the only risk is if they asking for more documents and you can’t supply it in time incase you are out of the country.
Exactly, and as has been proven many times on the forum, the HO call center and now probably same with Sopra Steria have been known to get it wrong and read generic responses from script cards as they are not allowed to give immigration or naturalization law advice.
I'm sure you're right but I'm too paranoid to just go on my travel when on the gov.uk the paragraph is very black and white in saying your application will be withdrawn if you travel. it doesn't say what type of application. So how can you guarantee that that won't happen? I just don't want to waste the £1300 fee and potentially damage my future chances!
Your choice at the end of the day, me personally as a pedantic accountant I would go with what Discretion16 above and CR001 below have advised.

It does NOT apply to citizenship applications. It is only relevant to visa and immigration application!!
What I do know is that that statement is generic and applies to all applications which includes all visa categories, permanent settlement (ILR) and naturalisation and what I do know is that ILR DOES NOT EXPIRE as other limited leave Visa categories do, so as long as you have retained your travel documentation and/or BRP, then no problem.
As I said, the only risk is that if they require more info and you do not pick up the request and respond timeously then you may have a problem.
Life is full of choices, as I said, your choice how you wish to handle, no worry.
