Sure, that happens here, too. No disagreement there.

And we don't have that safeguard !!  I fully appreciate your
desire to protect GnuMed users from such a problem.

So, again, our way of working must be different. I never had
trouble with that. Neither did any of the docs I work(ed)

Probably doable with a loose focus event. Else with a timeout.

I fully agree. That is why I have 4 clients running right from
the beginning of the clinic. I never had to meaningfully deal
with more than 4 patients at a time. If I did I would've done
something wrong.

> compared to a single click on another tab etc.
If you are suggesting that within ONE client there might be
several tabs with several patients - now THAT would get us
into much deeper feces. It then wouldn't just be the user's
problem anymore to work on the correct patient but also the
developers' one, too. I still acknowledge that it may work
well for you and who's to blame you for that ?
