Start Money dance, transactions, in the date column the full date is not displayed, day, month, O.K. year only shows first 2 digits. Also, the balance column at the end cannot be seen correctly, Its as if the screen display is too big for the screen. How do I adjust setting so I see the full date and last column?

I downloaded the Windows version for comparison, everything is fine shows complete date and balance column.

    It can be a screen resolution issue, and also there can be differences in fonts between the operating systems.

    If the problem is just that some columns are not quite wide enough you can left click on the divider line that exists in the header line, the arrow does not change to the familiar double headed arrow that you may be used to but you can drag the column divider in order to make column wider.

    Hi Jim,

    If that's not what you were referring to, can you attach a screenshot showing the area of the program you are referencing? If you're not sure how to take a screenshot, please see

    Hi Ethan,

    Tried to open Moneydance on Linux Zorin (the OS I am using).

    , Would not open. I do not have expertise knowledge of Linux so all I could do was un-install and re-install Moneydance, which opened O.K. after installing. However, I feel that I would be better off using it on Windows 10, would it be possible to switch the licence from Linux to Windows 10?

    Licenses are independent of the Operating system, so a license will work on any OS.
