Just installed upgrade MD 2109. Entered a new account (Investment). Entered data, associated an existing security, then went to the account. New Transaction button is greyed out. Did the same process in MD 2011 and worked okay. Have created other accounts in new MD like this one and most showed and accepted New Transactions. One other created account wouldn't allow New Transactions, and have forgotten the work around.

    First pop up was to click ⌘-N. Computer obviously doesn't understand. NEW TRANSACTION IS GREYED OUT AND NOT BUTTON/MOUSE CHOICE WORKS!

    Which window are you in when you try to click on this button in your investment account? Are you viewing your investment register, or some other screen within the account, like your portfolio view? Can you attach a screenshot showing the window you are looking at where the new transaction button is greyed out?

    Selected the accounts window. Tried Register, Bank Register and Sec Details. No New Transaction option. I just have jiggled something right because it now works.
    However, I just created a new account. After entering set up info, and choosing No to select Security, I could select New Trans. However, after entering one in the Register screen and hitting Enter, New Trans is greyed out and isn’t available. Command-N doesn’t do a thing.

    I have just encountered the same problem. I setup an investment account for a cash account in a brokerage (Fidelity) investment account. It lets me enter one new transaction and then new button is grey. If I quit and restart, I can enter one new transaction.

    Fascinating update: When I switched to summary view and went back into the account, new transactions were enabled for multiple lines. Doesn't make sense to me but it seems to be working.
