Split Category Details

You've got this really cool function where hovering the mouse pointer over a day in the calender that has reminders set, a pop up appears that list the reminders for that day. Now what would be really cool and time saving would be a similar function when the mouse pointer hovers over the Splits on a Transaction register line item. So on a transaction that has say - 9 splits - hovering over - 9 splits - would show a pop up that list the actual catagory and amount being posted.

    On a Mac, if you hold down the alt/option key and hover on a txn, then it does exactly this? Not sure what the equivalent windows key is tho’

    It should be Alt on windows.

    If I salect a transaction then hit the Alt key the split shows.

    Hovering and pressing ALT appears to have the same effect.

    Brilliant. Thank you both. However the most splits it can show is 19 and one of my monthly transactions has 32, but that's just one amongst many so no big deal, still it's a step in the right direction.
    I searched KB for this but came up with nothing so how do you guys know about it?

    I follow the forums, new versions of the software, and also do some Beta testing. I keep my own notes on Moneydance usage.

    same here. Had no idea about this feature.

    Another problem has been with dual screen/monitor. If you have 2 x screens
    - try this out..
    Tools->Reports. Select any report ( eg Income & Expenses ). Click on SELECT
    to make a selection of accounts. The screen suddenly pans beyond your
    screen ? Perhaps this happens also with single monitor - i have not tried.
    No matter what you do - you cannot limit it to one screen. There are
    numerous others...

    Displaying nested accounts with their full path is another. Report tables
    cannot accomodate them. No way to switch the path-view off.

    Some requests for features have not been looked at for years. Search in a/c
    names, search in reminders etc.

    Are there hidden options for all these also ?

    Hi roneydxb

    Regarding search in reminders…..

    Stuart’s being too modest here, he contributed a great python script which allows you to save all the details of your reminders to a csv file

    I’ll let him provide the latest vers, I have v3 & although I have only used it occasionally it has helped me sort out my auto commit dates.

    Thanks for all your python scripts Stuart

    Hi Jeff, Stuart,

    I guess I missed that message somehow. I've just subscribed to these
    messages recently. Would appreciate if you could kindly resend.

    I have myself been using moneydance since 2012 or thereabouts and I am very
    keen to see this get to the top of the list in personal finance software.
    And on that note - its good to see the support from fellow users. Thanks in
    advance once again - especially Stuart - Id be very keen to see more of
    these. I cant help say - I love the software.. but there is a lot more to
    be done

    Please do resend that email/script. Thanks again.

    Reminders extract still at version 3 - tho' I have plans... Attached. I also have scripts for showing total of stock/fund qtys across accounts and I am working on a UK cost basis report. I am happy to consider writing any particular scripts - depending on what it is....

    Hi Stuart
    Never used a script before but need to look at all my reminders on paper. Can you give me some pointers?
    Much appreciated

    Save the script to your local computer
    Run Moneydance
    Menu>Window>Show Moneybot Console
    Click Open Script
    Choose the script you saved
    Click RUN
    If on a Mac and you get two silly messages that say something like ““jffi14245415351618718681.dylib” cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified.” - just click Bin or Cancel - they are irrelevant and nothing to do with the script

    The script should run

    Good luck!!

    Hi Stuart
    Thanks for swift response, and with a little fiddling, success first time. MANY thanks! Did I read somewhere here you were working on a report generator? If so, any progress / news? Hope so.
    Best wishes

    Not me on the Report Generator - That’s Mike Bray…
    (But if there is a useful script / extract that I can write - let me know?)
