[GNC] Default tab on open

Rick Mobley
Is there a place to set a "default" tab to open up to? I'd like for it to
open up to my cash account each time, but it seems to open to the last place
when I closed off the program.

Any tab open when you exit should be re-loaded when you next open GnuCash.

So just have the Cash account register open when you close the app.

Can I just check that you realise you can have multiple tabs open at
once, each showing an account.  So to switch accounts you just need to
click on the tab.

Re: [GNC] Default tab on open

Rick Mobley
Yes, by the end of the month, I will likely have 10 tabs open while I am creating invoices. With the tabs at the top, they disappear off to the right and I can't just "click" on one I can't see without scrolling to the right. Scrolling now is one tab at a time instead of mouse wheel to the right and click on the tab I want to display.

For now, I have moved the tabs to the left and I can see them all to click on the tab I need. I was used to scrolling with the mouse wheel but if that feature has broken, I will teach this old dog to look for the tabs on the left side.

Thanks,
Rick

Rick,

It might not be as bad as you fear.

I never used the scroll feature and just kept closing tabs as they got too numerous.

I don’t keep my GnuCash window full width to allow for some other windows on the same screen. (bills & Invoices due reminders and the upcoming SX along with a calculator. This also gives me screen space to view PDF copies of bills to enter into GnuCash)

Since moving my tabs to the left, I now keep about 8-10 open at all times (mostly reports) and I use them much more and find it easier to ’see’ the one I want more easily than when they were on top. It took me all of maybe a day or two of adapting.

The only drawback is lots of tabs, especially with complicated reports, can slow down the re-opening of GnuCash, particularly on Windows. Fortunately (though I’m on Mac) I never shut the app down except to upgrade.

Regards,
Adrien

I leave lots of tabs open across the top of the window.  When I want to go
to a tab that I  cannot see, I right click on the tab bar and choose the
tab from the dropdown list.
