Undo a reconciliation (Making the undo feature work on any last user action)

I tend to perform reconciliations part through a statement month just to keep track of expenditure, particularly when there are a lot of small value items recorded. Normally I put the reconciliation amount in and “reconcile” to that figure with the recorded entries. I then exit the reconciliation process by clicking the “Finish Later” button. This works for me just fine.

Today however, by accident, I clicked the ”Done” button, which immediately marked all the entries I’d selected as permanently reconciled. This has caused me a world of pain as it makes the once monthly true reconciliation a very difficult task to re-balance correctly. Instead, I found it easier and less labour intensive to restore from an earlier MoneyDance backup and manually re-enter all the transactions again, I’d lost by rolling back.

My suggestion is, can we have an Undo button to reverse the last user action (whatever it may be), rather than the limited undo feature as currently featured?

    That already exists. On a Mac it’s CMD-z. I guess on windows it’s CTRL-z. It’s also in the MD menu too.
