Single Line View

Would it be possible to add a new view option in the next update? In the account register there is an option between single line and two-line view. I would like the next update to include a column for the memo in the single line view. As it is now the Description and Memo are in one column but the memo is in view only when a transaction is selected. The new view settings would have the Description and Memo side by side so both will be in view in the single line mode.

Please note this is a new feature request and not a technical issue question.

    Hi Tom,

    Just as an FYI...

    When in single-line mode, if you tap the ALT key and just move your mouse cursor over the transactions in the register, you'll be able to see the memo field data.

    As an added bonus, you'll also be able to view the various components of split transactions.

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    Just to add if you downloaded/imported transaction from your bank and merged with manually entered transaction you can also see the original Payee and Memo information contained in the download/import by holding down Alt key and moving the mouse.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your help. I had no idea I could use the ALT key to see all that information. It's a little cumbersome for me to use the ALT key though. I use a Surface Pro tablet computer with the on screen keyboard. Two columns with Description and Memo side by side would work best for me.
