I was recently trying to delete a bunch of transactions (see this thread, today's entry if you want to know why: http://help.infinitekind.com/discussions/suggestions/147-text-file-...) so I did a search for a quotation mark. I then wanted to select them all & delete them, but I couldn't. It turns out, as best I can tell, that you can't actually do anything with the transactions you find other than print the list! Please let us manipulate the data we find!

    Hi Gandalf

    You are correct the built in Find function is rather limited. Fortunately there exists a free 3rd party find and replace extension that is quite comprehensive. To download and install it go here:

    http://www.mennesoft.com/findandreplace/index.html

    We liked the extension so much that we recently hired the developer to be part of the Moneydance team.

    However I believe even with find and replace it is not possible to delete transactions with this extension.

    Sincerely

    Ben Spencer

    Ben-

    Thanks for the tip. This looks like an excellent extension. Why doesn't this extension appear when I click extensions/add/from the internet? Are there others that aren't in that list? Is there a list of them anywhere?
