Suggestion: navigating split transactions with arrow keys (19 Legacy Votes)

Please allow me to use the keyboard arrow keys to navigate a split transaction.  When I have to update my paycheck each month with 15 splits, it is a real pain having to use the touchpad to select and edit each field.  I end up just hitting the tab key 5 times after changing each amount to get to the next entry.  If I could just hit the down arrow to move down to the next amount to edit it would save so much time.  I think the windows version worked like this as I don't remember having this issue.  Also when you arrow down, go ahead and highlight the entire cell so I can start typing right away and the old amount gets erased

    This sounds like an excellent idea.

    Any update on this, I am now on the latest version of 2018 and still nothing.  This does not seem that hard and there are many other posts on this

    Jeff, welcome to the slow process of enhancements for Quicken Mac! ;)  It's not that the developers don't care, or aren't working hard to make improvements, it's that there are HUNDREDS of requests for tweaks and new features, and development is slow. And priority is generally going toward implementing features which are missing from Quicken Mac over those which would improve the user interface in subtle ways. But sometimes when they need to open up one area of the program for a code change, they may roll in some smaller requested tweaks in the same area of code.

    That all said, this tweak could show up tomorrow, or not for two years; we have no way of knowing, as they almost never reveal what enhancements they're working on.

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Make down arrow move to amount field on next split line.


    When creating or editing a split transaction, I often have the same split items time after time.  In Q2007, I could place the cursor on an amount in the split list, edit the number, and push the down arrow to get to the amount field on the next split line.  This doesn't work in Q18.  I think it would be very convenient to use the up and down arrows to move to the same field on the previous or next split line.
