Just trying out MD after using Quicken for many years.

When entering a transaction there is an option in Quicken to use the enter key to move through the fields. Is this option availble in MD. Cannot see anything relative in preferences.

Thank you

    Thank you I did find that but was wondering if the enter key could be used to step through the fields in the transaction bar.

    Hi David

    In Moneydance the TAB key is used to TAB (step) through fields the ENTER key is used to Enter, So no you can't use the Enter key to Tab.

    To more directly answer your question, there is no way to change the behavior of the enter key.

    Thank you.

    I thought that might be the case. Shame you did not program that function into the program.
