Logical Bug re Foreign Account
I have all my accounts in USD. Except for 1 that is in Euros.
When I imported all my accounts [from Quicken] via QIF, the Euro account was defaulted to USD. To change that I did this:
* Exported via CSV the single account that is in euros
* Created new Account and denoted it to Euro
* Imported previous CSV file so now amounts are in Euros. Payments, Deposits and Balance are all in units of Euro which is correct.
* I would like a notice somewhere on the right side of the screen that says Amounts are in [Currency]
* The field 'Foreign Amount' is a misnomer: the amount here is actually USD which is not 'foreign'. You need to change the label to say: "Amount in Base Currency for this File" which is a far more accurate label!

Thank you for your feedback regarding the multicurrency import and register display. We have plans (and code behind it) to add the ability to set the currency for each account in a QIF file during the import process. That should be coming in a month or so. As for the field label, we don't have much room to work with so went with "Foreign Amount" because of space constraints as well as that the amount is foreign relative to that account. I will look into a way to better differentiate the currency of the amount, such as showing the currency ID next to the numeric amount.
