Add keyboard shortcut to OK the Reconciliation Screen

We shouldn't have to mouse over to that button.

    Are you asking about the "Done" button on this screen?
    As one can see, some of the buttons contain an underlined character, but not "Done".
    The minimum a programmer would have to change is to enable the "o" in "Done" as the keyboard shortcut character, allowing a keyboard shortcut of Alt-O for Done (Alt-D is already taken for the Delete button)

    For what is worth this one has bothered me for years.  But maybe there is hope.  For years I pointed out that the A in Mark All was underlined meaning that it should work with shortcut Alt+A, but it didn't.  A few versions back they finally fixed that.

    I happen to use the Mark All a lot because I have a manually entered investment account.  So it goes from "uncleared" to "reconciled" in one step.

    I have no idea what @Jim McLaughlin is talking about. Jim, can you be more specific?

    He means the Done button, not the OK button.  I do that from time to time,  you have dialogs that have OK or Save or Done, and in your mind they all "merge together".  :)

    Oh, pshaw. With that dialog, you can Tab into the Done button and hit Enter. Mouse not needed.
    Here is my pet peeve dialog. The "Did checks print OK?" confirmation can not be dismissed by keyboard. Once upon a time, you could just press Enter. Now, there is no way to focus on the OK button via keyboard; focus stays in the check number text box no matter what you do with the keyboard. You must use the mouse. Really annoying that only ALT-F4 dismisses this dialog via keyboard (and leaves Quicken running!). Try it.
