Tags field behavior

I have been a Moneydance user since 2010. I usually use the tab key to move from field to field when entering a transaction, and In earlier versions when I got to the Tags field I could use the down arrow to open the list of tags and move down the list until the tag I needed was highlighted. I would then press the space bar to select the tag, and enter twice to close the list and complete the transaction. Starting in Moneydance 2019 (possibly earlier--I don't remember) the arrow key would bring up the tags list but no longer moved the highlight down the list, so I have to grab the mouse and use the wheel to scroll down and select the needed tag. Can you please bring back the down-arrow key functionality? I just upgraded to version 2022.6 and hoped the down arrow key issue would be fixed, but it seems not. By the way, even the mouse operation seems to have a bug whereby scrolling down the tags list with wheel doesn't move the list until the mouse cursor is moved as well.

    Same issue even with the very latest MD 2023. Scrolling tags has been broken since 2021. Infinite Kind have to sort this immediately, preferably in the version of MD 2023 which they will have to re-issue so users can actually use their paid for registration data

    Thanks for your response and support Keith. I've been waiting for a response from InfiniteKind, but so far, crickets. Surely this can't be that tough to resolve? COME ON GUYS!

    Agreed, this has been a growing frustration for me.

    I have a problem that appears to be related. In past versions of MD if I did not include a
    sub category in the transaction list, the category but not the sub category would be included in the report. It seems to be broken in version 2022-6. I'll try upgrading to see if that fixes it.
