I know this has been previously reported (several versions ago) but it still isn't fixed so I'm reporting it again.

When you make a new entry and tab to the CATEGORY, many times the cursor (highlight) will be over a particular category, but pressing tab does NOT enter that category but something else. The program should enter whatever is highlighted. Moneydance 2019.3, MacOS 10.14.6.

    Hi monty,

    There is a newer version that you could test:

    I select Extensions > Check for Updates and it says 2019.3 is the current version. The website does NOT list any version that I can see.

    How in the world is a user supposed to know what the current version is?

    My error. When you get to the Mac download page, it does show 2019.3 (188) as the current version. I will wait for 2019.4 to come out to see if the bug was fixed.

    Yes, the latest Stable build is 2019.3. The preview releases/builds make subsequent changes until the program is substantially improved/tested for a new "Stable" release. I've been running the latest preview build for some time now, but I understand your reluctance and your decision to wait.

    Take care,

    Tony :)

    Yes, this is very frustrating and off-putting.

    I can confirm that it still happens on Windows in v2019.4(1897) and I can see nothing in the latest changelog that suggests it's been recently addressed since that in any preview build unless it falls under "misc cleanup". I'm not currently prepared to upgrade beyond 1897 to test any later version.

    Hi Monty,

    Unfortunately this is a bug in Moneydance. There's an existing ticket in our ticketing system regarding this issue, so I've attached it to this discussion and the developers will be looking into it.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support
