    David--

    no one disputes the usefulness of .log and .xac files--just their location on the hard drive. The proliferation of backup files in a user's main data directory can be annoying at best, and lead to new users erroneously opening backups at worst.

    While the names are longer, the naming convention places the timestamp immediately following the base filename and before the 'gnucash' extension, which means they sort ahead of the main file.

    Placing these files in a separate Backup folder would largely eliminate these problems.

    Setting the account also as a Placeholder account will achieve this.

    I would love something like this in place. I think backspace is a better choice than escape; escape often serves to close or exit a window. David Carlson's suggestion of a drop down list would be nice.

    I also wonder whether there is a way to prevent certain types of transactions from being added to the Quickfill list. I import a lot of transactions from my bank, and would rather use my own capitalization than the all caps entry from my bank. Unfortunately, these imported entries are added, and take precedence, since the Quickfill gives priority to the newer transaction.
