Need More Double Clicking

I'm finding that in many places, MD doesn't follow typical Windows conventions. One example is the lack of the ability to use a double click to perform an action. This may seem like a small thing, but here are two examples of how double clicking could make the app easier to use.

  1. In confirming downloaded transactions. Currently, I have to select, say, to Merge the transaction, then move the cursor over and choose accept. If I have 100 transactions to process, it would be much quicker to be able to just double click on the Merge line.

  2. When moving things back and forth between edit boxes (e.g. the Advanced dialog for adding things to the side bar), double clicking could be used to move an item.

    Hi xxtemp,
    I see your point but just FYI. It is possible to 'Accept' multiple txns at once. When multiple txns are selected the 'Accept' button changes to 'Accept All'

    Kevin is correct, and you are right that some of these feature would be well served by double-clicking. I've created a suggestion ticket.

    Yesterday I downloaded, categorized, and accepted a cycle of credit card transactions. It would have been a lot nicer to just double click on each of the suggested categorizations (the top most suggestion is almost always right). It wouldn't have been a lot faster, but it's more pleasing to just accept each one with one action.

    IOW, that's the place where I'd most like to see double clicking.
