When displaying in two line mode, I think it would be better if the first line would be in bold and the second line in non-bold type. This would separate the Description from the Memo and make both easier to read.

The current background highlight scheme doesn't do an adequate enough job of separating the two fields visually.

Another option might be to indent the Memo field to offset it better.

    Thanks for the suggestion for improving Moneydance, Charles! There's an existing ticket in our ticketing system with a similar suggestion, so I've attached it to this discussion and the developers will be looking into it.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance!

    Hi Charles,

    You don’t have to be stuck with the current background scheme. Have you looked into the option in Custom Themes –> Customize, so as to make the “Background of Register Alternating rows” a different say bolder color. In 2 line mode this would make your memos more obvious.

    Personally, I thing alternating bold lines would look a mess, but alternating colors can be tailored to the individual.

    I have alternating colors. Thanks. As my eyes change with age, it's more
    difficult to see some details
