Keyboard input ignored after switching registers

1. Open a credit card register from the Accounts tab, planning to enter details from a pile of credit card receipts.
2. Realise that the receipt you’re about to post is for a different credit card, so open its register, and
post the receipt.
3. Click the tab for the first credit card, and try to type in the date for the next receipt in the pile.

At this point, alphanumeric keyboard input is apparently ignored, and it’s necessary to TAB out of the
field and Shift-TAB back into it, or click the mouse in the date field.

I’m using 2.6.3 on an iMac with OS 10.9.4, and accept that I might have to put up with minor inconveniences
such as this as a penance…

Michael

Character lag in Transfer column

This is a problem I’ve had since I started using GnuCash (now 2.6.3) on my iMac (now OS 10.9.4) last year,
and it hasn’t been enough of a nuisance for me to comment on it.

I was helping my daughter-in-law with a similar sort of problem when entering text in a form being displayed
on a website by the Chromium browser, which was resolved by switching off hardware acceleration in
Chromium, and which made me think the GnuCash problem might be resolved in a similar way.

As I add successive type characters in a previously blank transfer entry, I get:

E			[blank]
Ex			Equity:Opening Balances
Exp			Expenses:Accountant
Exp:			Expenses:Accountant
Exp:A		Expenses:Accountant
Exp:Al		Expenses:Accountant
Exp:All		Expenses:Allowances
Exp:All		Expenses:Allowances
Exp:All:		Expenses:Allowances
Exp:All:B		Expenses:Allowances:Becky

As I do this, the blue highlight on the latter part of the transfer field usually lags behind the character
I’ve just typed, making me think I’ve failed to push the key down far enough for it to be registered.

This didn’t happen previously when I was using GnuCash with Ubuntu.

I know there are some quirks in the Mac version of GnuCash - e.g. you can’t double-click on an accounts file
in the Finder and have GnuCash open that file; instead it opens the most-recently-used file. 

If this is just the way it is, I can cope!

How to modify Invoice Table headings

HI, 

I would like to change the naming of the rows and columns in an invoice.

For example, in Australia the "Tax" row on the invoice should read "GST"
(goods and services tax).
So I'd like to be able to make this change on my invoices.

thanks for any help.

Export-import from Gnucash to kmymoney


I have several years of data in GC that I have attempted to export to kmymoney. I selected CSV when exporting
and when I "open file" in the import dialogue of kmm, the data is there. 
Then "import file" gives error msg about DATE format is incorrect. Many attempts to correct have been
unsuccessful

QIF Import

Hi there, 
I’m trying to import a QIF file converted from a CSV in CSV2QIF. 
I go through all the steps and when I click apply it says complete but nothing in my accounts changes. 
Any idea where I could be going wrong on this or advice on how to get it done would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks in advance,

Stroring data in PostgreSQL ... create anew?

Hi,

I want to make it possible to work on the shared home accounting 
between me and my wife (do I have to have the exact same version 
of GnuCash on both systems? I have RHEL-7 with 2.6.3 and she has 
still RHEL-6 with 2.4.15). I promise I will be careful not to 
access the data simultaneously, but playing with SQL database 
seems to me more simple than setting up NFS or Samba to share an 
XML file (BTW, what's better: XML or SQLite?)

I have created a database gnucash on the server and I can access 
it with psql from my workstation. group 'dbusers' (of which both 
of us are members) has ALL privilegis granted on the database.

Now, when I try to Save As data to postgresql (on RHEL-7) I get 
an error message "The file postgres://matej <at> localhost/gnucash 
already exists. Are you sure you want to overwrite it?" (why?  
I have just created an empty database) and when I say "Yes" it 
fails with "The server at URL postgres://matej <at> localhost/gnucash 
experienced an error or encountered bad or corrupt data."

The psql shows this:

gnucash=> \dt
List of relations
Schema |  Name   | Type  | Owner 
--------+---------+-------+-------
public | gnclock | table | matej
(1 row)

Import Transactions via CSV including transfer accounts

Hi,

I am using gnucash 2.6.3 in Windows 7 and I would like to import a huge
amount of transactions I downloaded from my bank as a CSV file. This file is
a bit messy, so I wrote a python script to clean it up in a way such that
gnucash understands it easily. When I import it into gnucash into my
checking account, all transactions are displayed correctly, but of course
there is no second leg of the transaction, i.e. the "Transfer Account" is
just "Imbalance". This means I have to manually enter the correct transfer
account for each transaction manually. Of course gnucash cannot know what
the correct transfer account is, but for almost all these transactions my
python script could easily calculate it from the description of the
transaction and write it into the CSV file, which brings me to my question:

Is it possible to import transaction data via csv including the transfer
account? (or even both accounts)

If not, is there any other way to import transaction data including the
accounts? 

I imagine the transaction journal and I would like to import exactly the
data necessary to produce an entire entry there like

Date              Description      Account                    Deposit   
Withdrawl
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2014-08-31    Chocolate        Checking Account                     10,00
                                         Expenses:Sweet        10,00

I am aware of the fact that gnucash has some way to "learn" what the correct

autocompletion problem

Hi, recently I've been having some annoying problems with the
autocompletion mechanism in gnucash.

The problem: when I start entering a description for a transaction
that was allready present, say "groceries", I'll type "g", then
"roceries" will appear highlighted; at this point, if I type any letter
except "r", it will substituted the highlighted portion (as expected),
but if I type "r", it will auto-complete to "groceriesr", without any
highlighting and with the cursor at the end. If I type fast enough
(which is way faster than what I can comfortably type) it will
correctly overwrite the highlighted text even if I'm typing the same
letters as in it.

The second part of the problem: if I've autocompleted the description
and TABed out of it, into the Deposit/Withdraw column, the previous
quantity will be there, highlighted; but when I type a number, instead
of overwriting the existing ones, it will append it to the existing
one. So if a 9.66 appears (highlighted) because of a previous
transaction, and I type 8, I'll end up with 9.668 instead of simply 8. 

As you can immagine these are *very* annoying problems when you have to
enter many transactions, it significantly slows down the process. 

I'm on archlinux and using gnucash version 2.6.3, and I have just tried
2.6.1 and 2.6.2 with same results (which would go back to June when I'm
pretty sure I didn't have these problems). 

It could have appeared after a recent X upgrade - I'm using 1.16 now.
I'd have a try downgrading that but it's quite complicated with a
package with so many dependencies, without messing up my system

budget subaccount rollup

Windows 7 (64) GnuCash 2.6.3

I seem to be missing something basic.  I have a budget divided into 4 periods.  I have accounts with
subaccounts, for example a Medical account with subaccounts copay, insurance premiums, dental.  I
recently needed to increase the budget for insurance premiums.  I increased the insurance premiums
subaccount in the budget and noticed that the Medical account total in the budget did not reflect the
increase in the subaccount insurance premiums.  I had to manually change the Medical account budget to
reflect the new total for the 4th period.  Is this how GnuCash is supposed to function?  I would think that a
budget account would automatically reflect the total of its subaccounts.  I've searched for a config
change and the forum but no joy.

This implies that your *system* (locale) currency is still GBP.
What's your system locale setting?

Can't find my accounts file (was reply to digest).

Hi

If replying to the digest please edit the subject line so that it is
meaningful, and remove all of the digest except the bit you are
replying to.  I have no idea which thread your reply is in response
to.  However see below.

Assuming that you are referring to an accounts file it will be
wherever you chose to save it the first time you did File > Save.  To
find it again if you open it and click File > Save As then it will
default to the folder it is currently saved in, so that is where it
will be.
