Hide Sidebar in 2011 preview

I love the new transaction matching along the side of the register rather than the bottom - much better design for comparing several transactions and matching things. However, I need a simple way to show or hide the sidebar - a button or better yet a keyboard combination.

    Or, how about covering the sidebar with the transaction matching screen - or providing on option to do this?

    Or, allowing the transaction matching screen to be a pop-up window that I can put anywhere and have it remember the last position?

    Right now, it is annoying to widen the window during transaction matching to read my descriptions, only to shrink the window back down when I leave transaction matching. I tried using the re-size window options (full vs windowed) but it's not much better.

    Hi JP,

    We're in the process of deciding on the best way to handle this problem, since it's affected a number of our users. However, I did realize that there actually already is a keyboard shortcut for hiding the sidebar. Ctrl-Shift-S (or Cmd-Shift-S on a Mac) will hide and unhide the sidebar.

    Hope that helps!

    I like the idea of a pop-open window that can be moved and position remembered.

    I used to not like the account sideview as it duplicated much of what I had set up in my home page. I have now warmed to it though since unwanted accounts can be hidden and I have started using collapsed account type subtotals in the home page (with other stuff, of course, like expense thermometer and portfolio allocation pie. A good thing about the account sideview is that you can see other accounts when a register is open, also making it is easier to open another account's register.

    I made my sidebar approximately the same size as the transaction matching screen and with the keyboard combo to show/hide the sidebar my problems are solved and life is good.
