Big thanks, Windows version, multi-currency symbol bug ?

Y B

Having problems posting: someone included paypc.com on the spam assassin list.
we are innocent !

Hello !

Following the suggestion of Fred Perrin to set Tools>Security Editor>Show
National Currencies, I'm posting here.  Thanks also to Mike Alexander for his
pioneering work !!!  The issue is the flag to display currencies.

The Linux version appears to work and explicitly show $HKG, $CAN, $US and the
other 10 or so "dollar" currencies.  Hooray !

I tried the same in Windows 2.6.19 git rev c1b5e6c+ on 2017-12-17 and explicit
currency display does not seem to work.

Needless to say in a globalised economy this is not small matter.

I would also suggest that a flag be allowed to explicitly set date format rather
than inherit from the OS.  I find the American date format utterly confusing and
highly conducive to creating errors.

Thanks !!!!  to everyone for GUCash.

You cannot image how relieved I am to be able to get away from the ad-bloated,
captive Quicken and their refusal to allow import of QIF except via their $10 a
month behind closed doors deal with the major banks who mostly seem to only give
about 60 days of transactions if you are lucky.  I'd buy you all a beer and send
it down the wire if I could.

This does not appear to make sense.

You say that (like most people) you find the American date format
confusing. You will therefore have set your OS to display dates in
ISO8601 format. IIRC the default setting for Gnucash is "Locale", i.e.
take its settings from the OS. If that doesn't work for you, you can set
it explicitly to "ISO". What is the problem?

I think I have already replied to this on the user list.

If you really want to see the symbols in your own odd way you change them in
Tools / Security editor

You don't get a different answer on the devel list if the answer on the
user list was correct.

Tools/Security editor in Windows (versus Linux) likely bug

The Manager

Windows 2.6.19 git rev c1b5e6c+ on 2017-12-17 :currency display appears and can
be checked does not seem to work when creating balance sheets & the like.

It works fine in Linux.  One of those things....
