Exchange Rate. for Foreign Amt retained

Every month I receive in my € bank account an amount originating in $. Example, the US Payor sends a Foreign Amount of $1,000 which gets credited to my € account as a Deposit of €1,081. Entering this 2 amounts yields an Rate of 1.081...

No problem, but when I next enter for the same day an other Deposit, but this one being a local € Deposit not involving any Foreign Amt. Moneydance (version 5134) automatically applies the 1.081 rate and treats it as it were a foreign deposit.

Can MD please stop this carrying forward of the Rate. Thanks

    The rate only appears if the transfer account/category is in a currency other than the account you are registering the txn in. So what is the currency of your account and what is the currency of the transfer/category?

    Hi Stuart,
    Not sure I understand what your are saying. Attached is (redacted) screenshot from my € Bank Account. The currency of this account is set to Euro. But this is besides the point.
    I enter the amount deposited into my € bank account, here 1,177.81 (this being the amount in Euro received by my bank), then I enter the originating Foreign Amount, here 1,274 (being the originating foreign currency amount) Then the Rate appears, here 1.081…). This works fine.

    But then… see my original submission.

    This is not a new issue, I saw this with all prior versions of MD.
