Mone Deluxe Sunset Keyboard Shortcuts RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Money 99, if I am in an account register or any of the investment views, I can type Alt-s to produce a drop-down list of accounts or investments, respectively.  Is there an equivalent keyboard shortcut for the Sunset version?

    When entering transactions for multiple investments from my broker's monthly statement, it is a pain to have to return to the "Portfolio" view to switch investments.  Ditto for entering charges for multiple credit cards after the wife had a fun day shopping.

  • I like to create an AccountList shortcut at the top. From the Account List, clicking the name of an Investment account puts me into the Account Register for that account. I usually select View: All transactions covering all dates, Sorted by Date (increasing)

    I don't understand what your alt-S does. In an investment register, the alt-S does nothing in Sunset.

    Make sure that it says "Advanced Register" above the Total column heading on the right.

    I un-tick ShowTransactionForms in the lower left.

    An important control in an account Register is Cntl-T to toggle to 2-line mode.

    To switch investments in an entry, click into the Investment field. Expect a drop-down list, but if you start typing, the investment will show up when you have unambiguously typed the first part of the investment name or symbol.

    Here is key Shortcut FAQ from Money 2007, which should be the same as Sunset:
