Three things that make me want to look elsewhere for a money mgmnt pgm...
1-This is very nutty, the ledger doesn't scroll to the end when I enter a new transaction.
2-I would like to have the ability to change the sound to something else besides a ca-ching!
3-I would like to be able to autofill with just one key not 2 or more.

    Hi Timothy, 1) There's a setting in Preferences... Register Follows Recorded Transactions, which, from what I understand, is supposed to scroll the register to the bottom after a new transaction is entered. The problem I encounter is that whenever I switch to the Register View the scroll bar position is usually random and NOT at the bottom of the register. Solution: PageDown. 2) Turn the sound off. It's been my experience that no matter what sound you use, after Recording 15 or so entries your pretty much sick of hearing it. 3) Autofill using one keystroke is probably doable. I've seen it implemented on and other financial sites for stock quotes. Kevin N.

    Hi Timothy

    It is also my experience that the "Register Follows Recorded Transactions" does not seem to be functioning as I would expect. I'll check in with the developer about this.

    While Moneydane does not let you change the sound that is played you can turn it off completely by going to File->Preferences and unchecking the box that says "Beep when transactions change"

    With regards to auto fill are you refering to the the category selection control when entering a transaction. It is my experience that one keystroke is sufficient to activate the auto fill function here. Is this not the case with you? What version of Moneydance are you using?

    Hi Tim, When you enter the Register View hit the "End" key on your keyboard. It works even better than "PageDown" -Kevin N.

    Hi Tim

    Further investigation of the behaviour of the register when you enter transactions leeds me to believe that it is functioning correctly.

    My understanding is that the register will automatically scroll to display the transaction that you have just entered. This is not necessaryly the transaction at the end of the register as the transactions are sorted by date. If I enter a transaction that is newer than all other transaction in the register it is my experience that the register will consistently scroll to the end.
