Investing registers - Setting columns displayed.

Can Investing register columns be displayed/hidden as they are in Banking registers?

In particular; My brokerage registers have two columns next to each other "Security" and "Description" which display exactly the same thing.  I'd like to have the screen space back.

"Investing's" Register Views and preferences don't seem to have anything like "Banking's" Register colums...

    Sounds like you have some installation or setup issues.  Security field should display only Security Name. Description should display Share Quantity and price/share for Buys and Sells, Blank for Div, Interest.  Should not be duplicate information.  

    Dow you have the screen resolution or fonts set non-standard?

    May need to reinstall the program and the latest update.

    I see the duplicate fields for WriteChk & Withdraw transactions, but not for other transaction types. nsteffen1, do you really see duplicates on every investment transaction?

    You cannot customize investment registers like you can banking registers.

    I just noticed that the duplicate (rather than blank) Security/Description lines were all:
    Action = "Div". Bought/Sold/ReinvDiv are quanity and price as you said.

    Thank you for pointing that out.

    Just like I mentioned above...all my dupes were Div's.  Other transactions had quanity/price data.  I just have a lot more Div's than other Actions so I didn't see anything other than Div.

    Yup..I would love to be able to customize Investing registers too.  Now where was that suggestion box? :-)

    Thanks

    Suggestion box is right here, but when you post, check "idea" instead of "problem". And start with a search to see if your idea has already been posted.
