TAB-812Tablet - Newly created charts not visible after creationFixed an issue where newly created charts were not visible on the patient records screen.

This is mentioned in the other release notes above.

We have fixed this defect and have also added clearer messaging back to the user to indicate that they would be operating in offline mode.

It was discovered that this issue only occurred when the user was editing the HPI field and immediately navigating away from the page. This resulted in a save issue where no data was saved.
