How to change the date tab settings in the register

Transform Member
I'd like to add a tab stop for the "day" in the register. Default setting is month, then tab's directly to Payee.

    That is by design.  The Tab key moves between fields (columns)... not subfields.  But, solution is easy:  the "/" key moves from month to day to year.  Just tab "/" to get to the day.

    Also, if you don't know all of the other date shortcuts, they save a ton of time. Once you've tabbed into, or clicked in, the date field - with no need to highlight either M, D or Y:

    +/- move forward or back one day at a time
    t = today
    m = first day of this Month
    h = last day of this montH
    y = first day of the Yyear
    r = last day of the yeaR

    Also, Option-Tab moves from month to day to year, if you prefer that to "/".

    Also, both Option-Shift-Tab and Shift-Tab move backwards from year to day to month

    And one more: you can use the keyboard left/right arrow keys to move among the subfields within the Date field.
