There seems to be an issue with the importing of OFX files.

If you do a manual import of an OFX file via File > Import you get the familiar

“Select An Account” box pop-up.

However, there is now a new check box on that screen

“Remember This Choice”

If you tick that box, it goes away and from that time onwards the OFX file gets imported immediately.

Here is the problem, there does not seem to be anyway of changing this behaviour back to selecting the account to import to manually.

At first I assumed that this could be changed by editing the config.dict file but that does not seem to be the case.

99% of the time this is fine. But sometimes you may want to import the file to say a Test Account & also banks have had a nasty habit of tinkering with the OFX file suddenly changing the layout. Under the above circumstances you could end up with loads of erroneous data.

Please can you tell me how I can revert back to selecting the account to load the OFX file to manually?
