  1. Add the ability to attached scanned images to invoices.

    Gnucash could kick off new process to display image based on type (gif, jpeg, pdf, etc) maybe. Similar function is present in Quicken.

      • Configuration Option for Backup Location

        It would be nice to have the option to place Gnucash-generated backup files in
        a designated folder. This configuration setting might best appear on the same
        Preferences tab as the Delete Backup Files preference. The preference pane
        could display:
        - the active backup folder (defaulting to the data file location),
        - a folder selection widget, and
        - a Select button to implement the change

        • Manually change ordering of Transactions

          Corresponding bugzilla item: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=700804

          It would be really helpful if GnuCash had the facility to move transactions before or after a particular transaction of the same day, i.e. to change the ordering manually by some buttons or similar. If time could be mentioned in seconds then we could do that to rearrange the transactions.
          But easier would be to have Up and Down arrows to rearrange transactions by just selecting on the arrow and clicking on up or down.
          If the moved transaction reaches the beginning or end of the set of the same day's transactions, the transaction date of…

            • Change minimum vertical resolution to work on netbooks (1024x600)

              The GnuCash window can not be resized below about 700 pixels high, which does not fit within the space available on a netbook 1024x600 screen minus Gnome panels. Even autohiding panels doesn't allow a full view.
              Were the restriction removed, the register window would seem to work fine, although the edit scheduled transactions dialogue may be a bit cramped.

              • Import-Export Client & Supplier Details

                There desperately needs to be an option to export customers information. I
                understand that there once was this option but it doesn't exist anymore?

                I keep all of my customer data in gnu-cash, I would like to be able to export
                everything in the "edit customer" window under the "customer" & "shipping
                address" tabs - all to csv for use in spreadsheets (vCard format would be nice
                too but not as useful).

                company name, customer name, address, phone, fax, email, shipping address,
                shipping phone, shipping fax, shipping email

                • Remember when I've hidden the scheduled transaction calendar

                  Every time I go into the Scheduled Transaction Editor, I hide the calendar. It takes up more than half the form, and for me it's useless. It would be wonderful if it could just remember that it had been hidden, and stay hidden, instead of coming back every time.
