I'm unable to recreate this on my system. Can you clarify which version of Moneydance and which operating system you are using?
Can you describe in more detail the steps you are taking that causes this issue? For example, when you open the split window, are you clicking on anything within it before closing it? If it's helpful, you can also attach screenshots to illustrate what's happening. If you're not sure how to take a screenshot, please see http://www.take-a-screenshot.org/
Thank you for your prompt reply. I am using MacOS 10.14.6, and Moneydance
In trying to narrow down exactly when this is happening by screen shots, I
was able to determine exactly what is happening. On a split entry, when I
go back into it, and change the Memo field, and then Tab over to the
Category field, the Category field changes! If I change multiple Memo
fields within the same item, and then Tab to the Category field, all those
Category fields are changed to the same arbitrary category.... not the one
I initially chose.
As you can see in the attached screenshot, I initially had this entry
divided up between Auto:Principal and Auto:Interest. When I changed the
Memo field, the categories got changed when I Tabbed over to the Category
I do get the dialog box asking if I wish to save the changes. (I apologize
for saying that I wasn't getting it.) I was expecting to get it, because I
had made changes to the Memo field.... not realizing that the Categories
were getting changed also.
Hope this is sufficient for you to duplicate the situation.
I am encountering this problem often. It happens every time I edit a split
I open the split. If I make a change in the Memo field and tab to the
Category field, it changes the Category field. If I do not make a change
and just tab to the Category field, the Category field does not change.
On the enclosed attachments, the first shows the split as it was initially
entered. All I have done here is open the split. The second attachment
shows what happens after I have made a change to the memo field, and tabbed
to the Category field. (It has changed the Category field.)
If I just make the change to the Memo field, and don't tab, (just go down
to another split item), sometimes the Category field changes and sometimes
This is very irritating. I can not trust this software to maintain the
data I have entered.
