[Mac] Focus changes to the side pane on cmd-Enter

Hello there,

In MD2010, I used to follow a procedure: import OFX file (my bank doesn't support any kind of exporting so I wrote a scraper script :), go to the transaction list, look for imported transactions, walk through the ones that I can identify, pressing cmd-Enter to acknowledge them.

In MD 2011 the above no longer works - first cmd-Enter approves current transation but moves the focus to the side pane detailing the transaction. As a result, while I can press cmd-Enter again to ack the next transaction, I can no longer use arrow keys to skip it.

Bug or feature? Definitely an annoyance for me :(

    I'll have to check in with the developers to see if this is a consequence of a feature or not. I'll go ahead and file a bug ticket for it. A workaround I found is if you hit left arrow before you hit the down arrow it should work. I know its not ideal but hopefully it will hope until things are resolved.

    Thanks for the answer,

    the workaround doesn't seem to work reliably - sometimes I'm able to get back to list, sometimes not. The focus doesn't seem to switch in either case, ie. there's no visual indication of the fact that the focus has switched back to the transaction list.
