Snap to Current Date Transaction (Q Mac)

jmine83 Member ✭✭✭
I want a single-click button or shortcut key that when activated, when I'm on the the account transactions and balances view, will automatically snap to the most recent transaction entry.

The problem is currently in Quicken, when I click around to different accounts, it might automatically drop me at transactions scheduled ahead into the future, or maybe the distant past. While I do want to be able to scroll through the transactions when I want to see past or future transactions, it would be very helpful to quickly snap to the most current date transaction when needed.

    Not crucial, but it would be helpful to be able to press "t" in a register and jump to today. It's a worthy idea.

    When QMac is not in edit mode, actually, it would be even better to be able to use ALL the date shortcuts to navigate the register....
    m=first of month,
    h=last of month,
    y=first of year,
    r=last of year,
    + or - = move by one day,
    [ or ] = move by one month,
    shift-[  or shift-] = move by one year.

    @smayer97 I think some of those date commands might be ambiguous when opening a register. "First of year" -- would that be first of the current year, of first of the year where the register is currently scrolled to? If the register is showing transactions across multiple years, what does "first of year" mean? But "today", at least, seems unambiguous.

    This would be terribly useful for files that may contain 20 years worth of transactions and you do a search for some long ago transaction and now you are stuck scrolling to get back to today.
