comment Tabbed content vs Scrollable list
I encountered a similar problem when I switched from list view to tabbed view: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/63612/…

comment Why notify the user when a device is plugged into the audio jack?
Plugging in headphone can trigger an analog or digital switch from interal speakers to external device. Having the notification depends on user expectations and software capability (can the switch even be detected?). For some users it not not be self-evident that plugging in headphones disables the speakers. I, for one, would find the noticiation pointless because I expect it to work this way. So maybe it is redundant, depending on user expectations.

comment Deletion Confirmations - Making clear what you will lose?
I know that user testing is a powerfull tool, but it also needs time and effort and a good understanding of the user base. I was looking for a more heuristic, common-sense approach since error prevention is nothing new and many people most likely have know-how on it.

comment Deletion Confirmations - Making clear what you will lose?
Thanks for your thoughts. Undo is incredibly difficult to implement and my application is not prepared for such a feature, so I don't really have that option. Thats the main reason why I need good error prevention. Does the wording in option 3 really sound mechanical? "Finance" and "Payout" are separate views in the application, so I though just listing them will suffice.

comment Textfield validation - persist, ignore, correct or delete?
Blocking save is not really an option. Being able to close the application and save quickly is a requirement. So I have to make sure the data is processable before saving.

By "Ignore invalid" I meant that the value IS declined. So I believe the 3rd option would be you pick then?

Notification sounds are pretty much obsolete nowadays. I would not go so far and sound a 'ding' when an error is made, that would get annoying very quickly. Other than that, I think a lot of my user have their sound turned off.

I meant examples in terms of "(images of) software that uses this style of master-detail" relationship with master on top and detail on the bottom".

Can you think of any real-world examples for that? Would you update the content area on single or double click? And how about the behavior when the number of elements gets very high?

Yes, they all belong to one certain real estate, like "apartment". The sections themselves are identified by 3 attributes: KG, EZ and Top. Apart from that, they have no name, so you need those 3 attributes to properly distinguish them.
