      Do you mean the new register design in the 2.5.2 version, or what is your comparison when you say "the default (old) behaviour" and some "new behaviour"?

        Do you know the existing workaround for faster typing: You can type the account separation character to jump from the first level of account name to the next one. In your example you can type 'E' ':' and if Expenses: is your only top-level account name starting with an 'E', these two keys will take you to the more meaningful options.

          Did you try to leave open the account windows and just close the overall gnucash window? All accounts that were open last time will then be restored on next opening.

            In SVN-Trunk version (and in fact in all versions since version 2.4.3), there's a button Preferences -> Business -> Extra buttons. Does that meet your suggestion?

              Note: It is not sufficient to add the HKTUE job. Instead, the list of scheduled online transactions needs to be queried, displayed, edited, deleted, i.e. a full CRUD (Create, Update, Delete) implementation for the scheduled online transactions. The HKTUE is only the "Create" part, but this is not sufficient.

                I'm afraid this won't be implemented simply because the User Interface for more than one date is most likely too confusing for the average user...

                    Have you tried the "Income/Expenses" -> "Income barchart" (or "expense barchart", or "Income/Expense barchart") report? That one shows multiple periods. Also, those reports have the option under "Properties" -> "Display" -> "Show Table" which will display the numbers that are shown in the diagram also as numbers (useful for exporting). Does that meet your requirements? If not, what else would you like to see? Please describe this a bit more in detail.

                      The discussion here is very nice. However, we are mixing up several different areas of requirements on this feature, and also the forum here isn't really helpful in structuring the various requirements into a useful work plan to implement this. As this feature project can nicely be divided into several sub-projects, I propose to continue the technical discussion on http://www.fossfactory.org where people can also commit to put bounties on those aspects that are most important to them.

                      You described two different approaches for the actual image storage: Either as separate files, referenced through the appropriate file name, or as binary BLOBs directly in an SQL database. Those two approaches will require vastly different implementations. Which of the two approaches would you like to see first?

                      Admincstim (Core Developer, GnuCash) supported this idea  ·

                        A prediction of the income/expense due to the scheduled transactions is available as the text report "Future Scheduled Transactions". So in principle your request can already be done. What else would you like to see instead of this already available text report? Please explain and adapt your feature title accordingly. Thanks.

                        Can you please add some explanation as for what exactly should be forecasted? Does that mean you have specified a budget, or the program should implicitly calculate a budget for you and compare this with a forecast? Or how should the program guess what is going on in the future?

                            [Somebody gave the following description of the use case:] In the real world, mom, pop and the kids all use the same account on the same computer. Might not be very security conscious, but that's the way it is. A simple password feature might not defeat 1337 hackers, but it would be more than enough to discourage casual snooping by curious fellow users.

                            In http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/FAQ there is some discussion of that question.

                              Then your request is probably what is available when using a "commodity" (stock shares or currency) account, where you have price and pieces for that commodity.

                                Have you experimented with the various view modes? Single-line vs. Split view. I thought this is already what you need. If not, please explain how the existing split view is not sufficient for you.

                                  As you wrote in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=549860 , the issue isn't caused by the data file or the main gnucash window itself, but by opening the "scheduled transaction editor" window. (Or, as with https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404451 , by a long ticker symbol in the summary bar.) This is a completely valid feature request and this should be fixed.

                                  What minimum size (pixels by pixels) would you need so that gnucash is usable on the netbook screen?

                                    Well, I'm a bit hesitating to allow more symbolic dates because the current list of possible date selections is already quite long. Can you elaborate a bit on your use case, i.e., on the sort of "forward report" you want to generate?

                                    We've received proposals to add plenty of other symbolic dates in the past, but IMHO the dropdown box shouldn't contain more than, say, 8 entries, so we declined quite a few of those proposals. Your idea with "today + x" does make sense, though.

                                      The proposed feature would be a useful enhancement, indeed.

                                      Currently, you can work around this issue by first entering the destination account and entering the description in a second step. The auto-completion of the destination account will not trigger anymore if there is already something in that field. Nevertheless I agree there is still room for improvement.

                                        The required changes to get the "clicking on filename, then letting gnucash launch and do xy" differ vastly from OS to OS. Apparently there are no clear priorities for which one this should be done first - all OS were asked for, so I deleted those comments as they didn't increase our information here.

                                          Please explain a bit more what you are suggesting here: What can you do in GnuCash right now? What would you like to do instead, i.e. in what dialog window do you want to see another possibility to click or enter or whatever, and what exactly? Thanks.

                                            The issue for the developers here is that it isn't clear at all where in the program the user is set for "accrual accounting" rather than "cash accounting". From my understanding, the choice for one or the other just results in the way the chart of accounts is set up by the user. Do you suggest the program should enable the user to switch from one chart of accounts to another?
