[GNC] Column Width

GnuCash - User mailing list
Hi
Is there an easy way of resizing the width of the columns, especially the transaction one. When I try to drag the column width across it just springs back.

Re: [GNC] Column Width

I am wondering about this same thing as well.

If you expand the width by double clicking on the edge of the column, it adjusts to it's width but at the expense of the spreadsheet shifting right of the fold.

Double-click the centre of the column header.

This may very well be a function of your OS, however, since gnucash is
written on toolboxes that behave slightly differently depending on
context.  In my context, ubuntu linus (and 2.6, in case that matters),
this works.

Yes, and then you can reduce the size of the Description field.

The Description field will ALWAYS auto-expand to fill the window size, but
it will not auto-reduce.  So you need to expand the list beyond the window
(so the scrollbar appears) and only then can you reduce the description
field size.

Jeff,

That's much better than double clicking on the edge of each column. Thanks.

Thanks Guys,

I will give it’s try when I get home. It’s strange that you can resize some of the columns, but not all of them.

Got it.

Is there any way to enter dates from keyboard? Eg, if you have to enter a record for past dates, you have to choose the dates from the drop down calendar. Any format that I can type to get the dates?

Gareth,

Checkout Derek Atkin's reply. You can resize all columns. Resizing description column in the end will fit the register to the screen width.

Just type it, in the form DD/MM/YY

If you type only DD then <TAB> to the next field, it will assume the current month and year.

If you type DD/MM and <TAB> you’ll get the current year.

Actually, there is a preference here where if you type DD/MM and tab
out, it will choose from a 12-month rolling window to select the year.
So right now, on April 17th, 2019, if I type 12/31 <tab> it would input
12/31/2018.

What version of GnuCash?
What OS/Distro?

Hmm.

There was definitely some keyboard issues in 3.3, but it should have
been fixed since then.  Unless, of course, there's a GTK bug and you're
hitting that.

There's no reason you should not be able to type a slash in the date column.

Yes, almost all are covered in the documentation. Our documentation is really great. I am reading the concepts and tutorials now.

Just wondering why / isn't working while entering dates in my gnucash! GnuCash 3.5 complied from source into Bunsenlabs Helium (Debian Stretch).

Yes, it's GTK bug. I had my doubts.

I could never install gtk+3.0 package as mentioned in the wiki. There were some dependency issues. Debian Stretch doesn't have them yet.

Anyway, I can manage it for now as Lithium/Buster is just around the corner.
