    A much better way to achieve this, which I've suggested in a separate feature request, is to have a trailing space cancel quickfill for any transaction. The test would be made at the moment when you move to another field, either by tabbing or with the mouse. That's convenient, unobtrusive, simple, and not in conflict with anything else (unless you really think that descriptions ending in a space are useful by themselves).

    Once autofill is turned off for a transaction, it should remain off so that it isn't turned on again by accident. If you really want it, you can just start the transaction over.

    Being able to cancel unwanted splitting is particularly vital.

    The cancellation mechanism should be something that is easy to use but does not conflict with any existing semantics. Backspace at the beginning of the description, or backspacing over the description and adding one more backspace, meets that requirement. ESC does also, with the additional possibility of a second ESC turning autofill back on.

    Showing all the descriptions at once might be excessive, but the ability to disable quickfill for a particular description would be very useful. This is related to, but not the same as, my request for per-transaction disabling of quickfill. In fact, both could happily coexist.

    The existence and popularity of Quicken's classes shows that there's demand for this facility.

    I don't think that guess is likely to be correct. More likely would be a new line of the split or an increase in a single line.
