Unable to clear transactions with the keyboard in the Reconcile Window

The reconcile window (cmd-B) used to mark transactions as cleared through the date specified in the initial prompt. This generally made reconciling very quick -- provided all the data in the register was correct. I can appreciate there may be a justification to change this behaviour because if the data wasn't correct, it took some effort to sort it out and find out where it was off.

However, the big problem that I am noticing now is that neither the space bar, nor the down arrow mark a transaction as cleared like it used to. The only way that I can figure out to clear a transaction is to click on it. Am I missing something? Obviously this new approach is tedious. Is there anyway to clear transactions with the keyboard? Has the shortcut changed? Or is this perhaps a bug?

Thanks for your help.

    The as of process that marks transactions as reconciling still works for me. The process only marks transactions that have been downloaded. Is it possible that you are looking at manually entered transactions?

    I believe the enter key is now used to mark a transaction in the reconcile window rather than the space bar.

    Ah! The enter key. That did it. Thanks.
