[GNC] Using 4.3 on Mac - contradictory notification message on startup

foxylady337
On starting GC this morning, I got this message:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/k0pw5bs11od7cpm/Screenshot%202019-02-10%2008.49.03.png?dl=0

It seems to say that there are no Scheduled Transactions to deal with today, then that two have been created.

There appears to be no action for me to take, so I’ll just click “Close” and keep my eyes open.

Michael

PS The log file created after the above is only 12Kb long, and contains three deletions:

Shutting down GC and restarting it doesn’t bring up the above message, but when I close GC I get the 94 Kb log file I’ve referred to in a previous thread, with what appears to be every Scheduled Transaction represented 4 times like this:

It looks as though GC checks for the need to make a Scheduled Transaction on being opened by making a dummy run through them all and if it finds none needs to take place today it fails to clean up the working. If there is one or more Scheduled Transaction due, the tidying up is done, but these three transaction deletions are recorded.

I find that message a little confusing too.  It means that two you
have entered with Create Automatically selected have been created, and
there are none that require manual creation.  Personally I would
prefer it not to even tell me about automatically added ones and only
tell me about ones I must create manually, but I haven't found a way
to hide that message.

Thanks for that clarification, Colin. I have all my Scheduled Transactions processed automatically, and had been unaware of the manual option.

I wonder why I haven’t seen this notification before?

I see it all very regularly (on Ubuntu) so can't answer that one.

Re: [GNC] Using 4.3 on Mac - contradictory notification message on startup

For what it's worth, I also set all my scheduled transactions. I used to see that message, but I have not seen it for a long time. I think the change happened when I got religious about unchecking the "Notify me when created" box in the Overview tab of the scheduler. However, that was a long time ago, so I can't be sure I did not also do something else.

Best,
John

Ah, why haven't I seen that before?  Edit > Preferences > Scheduled
Transactions > Show notification window (not).
Thanks John, hopefully that will get rid of the messages.
