The category field in the investment register doesn't properly do the drop-down operation. It seems to lose its place when the ":" key is pressed to drop down the selections of a given category. Other fields seem to work fine.

    I'm sorry for the delay in our response time. I wasn't able to re-create this issue- the : worked fine for navigating to sub-categories. Could you please let me know what OS, version of Java, and version of Moneydance you are running? This information is available in the Help->Console Window menu item, and will help us to better diagnose the issue.

    For any action that allows entry in the Category field the Parent category
    disappears when you press Shift + the colon key and you cannot enter a sub
    category. On the Fee Category field the parent plus the colon remain and
    allow sub category selection.

    Thanks again for your help.
