I saw this on my phone earlier today. Before actually checking the forum on my computer, I looked into this. I see now that I should have checked here, as there has been a lot of additional discussion. I have filed a bug report on our issue tracker.
As far as I can see there are two ways you can lose the notes:
- click on another window
- click on the title of another field in the data sheet
There are several other ways that always save the notes:
- Press the ENTER key
- Click on any data cell in the data sheet, in any column (as long as you click in a cell, not a title)
- Click on any other property in the inspector panel.
These days Mac laptops don’t have an ENTER key, you have to press Function-Return. Since the ENTER key is quite handy for Panorama, I use a program called Karabiner-Elements to map the right Option key into an ENTER key. This is a free program, here is my config that sets this up.
You can download Karabiner-Elements here:
