How do I get the program to select downloaded transactions in order to accept them?

When I download transactions I have them listed alphabetically. When I accept a transaction, instead of dropping down and selecting the next one, the program jumps around and selects another transaction seemingly at random. I am double checking them from an alphabetized list, so this is annoying. This was not a problem until recently.

    Allowing for the fact maybe moderators will change this to a Windows question (which it is no matter if you are doing this on Mac computer running "virtual Windows") I'm going to "answer" this question.

    Recently the Downloaded Transaction tab was "revamped" to allow more flexibility as in allowing for multiple select so that people can delete more than one transaction out of that list at a time.  By the comments that have been received it is pretty clear that this operation has affected how the sorting/selecting the next transaction works.  And a such is a "bug".  You should report it as such: Help -> Report a problem

    But also in my opinion this is an example of why having multiple modes of handling such things and making things complicated tends to lead to a lot of problems.

    The developers spend a ton of time on making the register have all kinds of features and such.  And then basically by having the mode of a "Downloaded Transaction list" you get the requests to basically repeat all that work in this list.  And that is far from easy, and it is certainly prone to introducing bugs like this.

    This is posted in a Mac category, but QMac doesn't have a downloaded transaction acceptance window/process. Are you really using QMac? 

    If you are using QMac, could you provide more detail of your download acceptance process? Which screen are you on? What filters do you have invoked? How are your columns sorted? Screenshots would be helpful.

    Of course! I should have mentioned that I am using Q for Windows on a Mac using a virtual machine, Parallels.

    Should I post this over at the Windows category or is this likely to be a Parallels problem.
