RFE: price editor should preserve last price even with "remove old"

Roland Roberts
First let me say, I love GnuCash.  Even my wife, an unregenerate Mac
user :-) loves GnuCash; she routinely goes through the rigamarole of
launching VNC from her Mac to connect to my Linux host to run GnuCash.

Now, about my request....  I have a handful of investments which do not
price on the open market.  I have a two of 529 plans for my kids which
don't have tickers that I can look up, and I have an variable annuity
from converting a whole life insurance policy several years ago.  I
periodically enter these prices by hand from statements.  So....

When I ask the price editor to remove old prices, it would be nice if
there was an option to not remove the most recent prices, or maybe just
a "remove all but most recent" selection.  Or even an option to exclude
prices which were entered by the user.  Any of those would suit my
purposes.

Again, kudos for a great program, I'm a pretty happy user here.

regards,

roland

That's cruel!

? Haven't you told her GnuCash will run on OSX ?

Can you file this RFE in bugzilla so we don't lose the meme?

Thanks,

Ah, but we share a data file which lives on my host.

I really need to mess with her Mac to mount the drive with the data,
then I could install it natively....

Yes, I've just been too lazy to mess with her Mac.  Except when I have
to.  Except for her Mac, all my other hosts use NIS/NFS and the
automounter takes care of things.  I'll get off my duff, really....
