Modify behavior when using auto fill for category type

When typing in a category, the drop down list will have (sometimes) multiple entries. Pressing enter seems to take only the top entry. Drop down menu should allow for keypad selection of choice. Currently it only seems to allow for mouse via click. If the mouse is sitting in the area a choice will be highlighted, but it won't be chosen if enter is pressed.

Desired behavior: Start typing in entry. Use keypad to arrow up or down to choice.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    Try this method.

    To enter a new transaction Ctrl N (Mac ⌘ N), type in data, click tab key to move to next box. When you get to categories start typing then use up/down arrows to select the required category and use tab to select and move to next box. Only use enter when you have typed in the amount.

    In case you are not aware see key short cuts at

    Hope this helps.
