Add Undo Functionality

Corresponding Bugzilla item: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=509267

Where's ctrl-z when you need it? There's several aspects to this. Naive undo would include being able to remove some typing or a paste operation you did to a field that you didn't intend. Sophisticated undo would let you reverse a transaction that you messed up without having to hunt for what account it's in now. Even more sophisticated might be multiple levels of both Undo and Redo, and a hint in the menu next to each about what would happen if you chose that option.

This is another simple time-saver that's probably been mentioned elsewhere but may be worth listing here for tracking purposes.

        It's a must. Perhaps a complete chain of list of change have to be implemented is for replaying an history with little batches in the list. But it's a must have!

        A simple "Esc" before pressing the "Enter" key would be a start: I find if I partially overwrite a previous entry, I can't even "cancel" the partial error by pressing "Esc" !? For instance if the date is partially bungled, "exiting" by clicking elsewhere gives the "default" date rather the previous correct entry...

        bump one on this. Erroneous transaction deletes are very easy to do, and the software even lets you turn off the "are you sure" functionality.

        Invoking UNDO could also be a way to override autofill. Type a description, tab, autofill invoked, hit undo, and the autofill is undone but not the just-typed description. (The next undo could do that.) This is how auto-correct is often implemented in OpenOffice or Microsoft Word; the first undo just undoes the autocorrection or formatting.
