Clicking on Category List should load that category into the open transaction

To avoid having to scroll or guess a category, it would be nice to be able to click on the appropriate category while the category list is displayed in a second window.

Thanks !

    Hi George

    In a sense the category drop down selector is a second window. Would this issue be resolved if we simply made the category selector significantly taller to reduce the need to scroll?

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for the VERY quick response.

    BTW, I LOVE Moneydance and salute you for creating and expanding an
    excellent product. I hope you are proud !

    I have a 21" imac and consequently can have two large windows open.
    This enables me to have a register open on the left and the category
    list open on my right. To avoid having to scroll through the entire
    list of categories from within the transaction (ie while entering or
    editing the transaction in the register window), it would be much
    faster if I simply could go to the category list on my right and point
    and click on the transaction that I want. By having the category list
    open from top to bottom of the screen, I can see half of my categories
    at one time. Such a programatic tweek would save lots of scrolling

    I am not complaining mind you. I love your program ... just a
    suggestion as to how the best could be even better.

    Thanks !
