Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230743
gnucash transaction entry window description field misbehaves
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:05:54 EDT
Description of problem: Multiple unexpected (compared to gnucash 1.8.x series)
behavior issues with the "Transfer Funds" window, accessed by Ctrl+T or menu
Actions > Transfer... See step by step below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnucash 2.0.2,
2.0.4, 2.0.5 FC6 versions
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnucash file
2. Select an account to transfer money from
3. Ctrl+T for "Transfer funds" window
4. Enter amount (works fine), tab to date (works fine), tab to Num (works fine),
tab to Description (problems start).
5. Start typing a description; after the first letter is typed, gnucash fills in
the field with a previously entered description. If a second letter is typed,
the second letter is placed before the description that gnucash remembered. For
example, I intend to type in "John"; I type "J", gnucash enters "Junk", I type
"o", and now on the description line I have "oJunk". Subsequently typed letters
will be entered in front of the description that gnucash remembered. At the end
of my example, I would have "ohnJunk".
This is something that is unlikely to be fixed in Fedora before it's fixed
upstream. You can track the upstream status of this issue at:
Figured that. I'll paddle upstream and follow along there. Thanks for the link Bill.
