Would it be possible to have an auto one for this field as well as category field. I have many payees beginning with Tes and have to overtype or reach for the mouse to click the disclosure triangle to open the description pop up. Just cuts down on work for each entry. Coming from See Finance, Mac only and sadly no longer being developed, which I run in tandem with MDance its something I greatly miss.
I am using latest Mojave and latest MDance 2020.

    Hi tonyt,

    Windows 10 Home
    MD 2020.1 (1928)

    In the above environment, I TAB into the 'Description' field then use either the UP or DOWN ARROW key to open the 'Description' drop-down list. I continue using the ARROW key to highlight the desired payee. ENTER commits the selected payee to the register and moves focus to the 'Category' field.

    Thanks Kevin. Better than nothing but I would still like the popup to automatically appear when typing into the description field and refine itself as extra letters were typed in, narrowing things down so to speak.... if that's clear.
