Auto save facets before switching to a new Note

I've configured the New note shortcut and I was creating a lot of new notes without realizing that I was losing the contents of the last facet every time I created a new note. I don't think that should be the expected behaviour.

To reproduce the problem
1) Use New note shortcut to create a new note
2) write something into Facet 1
3) Press tab and write something in Facet 2
4) Use New note shourtcut to create another note
5) Go back to the previous note, the Facet 2 is empty

    Hi Ruben,
    I have tried to reproduce this behavior, but it is saving OK for me when I use the shortcut.
    Is there anything unusual about the notes?
    What template does the stack have?
    How many facets per note?
    How many facets are visible at a time?
    Kind regards,

    Strange because I get it all the time

    The template is Question / Answer
    The stack is always Loose notes, because I'm using the Preferences / Quick Note / New Note shortcut (which I set to Cmd-shift-L)
    2 faces per noteI

    I'm able to reproduce it 100% of the time

    1) cmd-shift-L
    2) type aa
    3) tab
    4) type bb
    5) cmd-shift-L
    6) cmd-alt-rightarrow
    7) go to facet 2 (and it's empty)

    If I press tab between steps 4) and 5) then it's ok.

    By the way, I don't get this if I use the "normal" New Note shortcut (cmd-n), only if I use the "global" Quick Note / New Note.

    Ah, OK. I was testing the normal new note cmd-n. We'll test the quick note one. Thanks.

    Kind regards,

    Were you able to reproduce it?

    Yes. We will fix this in an upcoming release.
    For now, I suggest trying to use the standard new note shortcut, rather than the quick note shortcut.

    Kind regards,
