I really like MD over Quicken. A few features that would be nice (copy/paste), 401k updater, and blocking of downloading explicit transactions would be perfect!

Until then, it's still the best!

    • Copy and Paste does exist?

    • MD+ for 401K updates?

    • What do you mean by blocking downloading of explicit txns?

    e.g. possible considerations...:

    • within timeframe

    • nothing past due

    • only when repeat type is monthly

    • only when reminder is set for auto commit

    I wish for Copy and Paste!! I can do a Control C/V, but not everywhere.
    In Q they had a 401k update option which just asked for the quantity, share price, and grand total. It would automatically enter the adjusting transaction.
    For explicit transactions, I have duplicates in MD+ from Ameritrade. So my dividend is also being added as a weird security. I would like to block that from being dowloaded, and I could enter the information manually.

    Copy and paste works with fields not records, can you tell us how you wish to use C & P as in some cases there are ways of achieving the same result.

    I know of some of the adjusting "transactions" that Quicken does, they would do some with mutual funds where I am, and while they look neat and work in Quicken, unfortunately, many are not valid in a program that is based on double entry accounting rules like Moneydance is.

    I tried to copy from the total shares for a security. Instead of highlighting, it opens up a security detail page.
