"Bookmark" scroll location in account

When switching back and forth between multiple accounts, I would love to have Moneydance remember where I was positioned in the account instead of always going to the bottom.

    Hi mgph152,

    Something that you might try in that type of scenario is to open one of the other account register(s) in a new window.

    To do so, from the left side bar, right-click on the account in question and choose 'Open in a New Window'.

    You can then use key-combo ALT-TAB to toggle between the two windows.
    Key-combo CTRL-W closes the new window(s) without closing the main Moneydance window.

    Allow me to chime in here with a huge +1 for this.

    If I am working within a register - and close Moneydance at the end of the day - when I return I have to manually scroll/search to find the place where I stopped work.

    In Quicken I could drop a colored "flag" at a particular point and then - later when I returned - search for "the red flag", (or whatever color I used), to find my place.

    Likewise, if there were transactions that needed more extensive review, I could drop a different color flag there, (blue for example), and then find all the transactions with "blue" flags. I could also set a view criteria so it would only show the transactions with a particular colored flag, considerably simplifying and speeding my work.

    Being able to drop some kind of marker so that Moneydance will return there when re-started would be a tremendous time saver. Even if it weren't automagic, being able to jump to a specific place-marker would be excellent!

    Hi jimrh,

    Something that you could do in this instance is to assign a 'Blue Flag' Tag to the transaction(s) in question and simply enter 'blue' into the 'Search' field.

    How do I go about doing this?

    Hi jimrh,

    Simply create a Tag for the transaction(s) in question.
    Name the Tag 'Blue Flag' (or whatever you want.)

    Entering 'Blue Flag' (or whatever you named the Tag) into the 'Search' field (in the upper right-hand corner of the register) will bring up the tagged transaction(s).
