Please consider adding a popup calculator on the payment/credit fields to allow for more complex calculations directly in the program. I used to be able to enter splits from receipts directly in my money management software, but with Moneydance I have to use an external calculator, because the inline calculations simply do not do tax percentage easily.

    Mary Jo, The transaction fields have a calculator built in. You can type whatever calculation notation (including parenthetical calculations) that a GUI calculator could do and more. So tax percentages can be calculated using this also.

    Well, you apparently closed this discussion so I can't comment on it, but this answer does not help me at all. Here's what I tried to post:

    I know about the inline calculator, but I've not found an easy way to do percentages with it. Let's say for instance I'm doing my grocery receipt and I have 3 items I need to add up and then add 6%. If I do for instance (10+10+10) + 5% (which is how I'd enter it on a normal calculator) it does not give the right total (I get 35 in Moneydance). I cannot find any way to do it that does not require me to enter all the amounts in twice, which is really a pain when you have a fair number of items to add up. Is there a way to do it that I am missing?

    I apologize Mary Jo. The notation for adding 6% would be 1.06*(10+10+10)
