Starting from release 1.5.5 looking at that XML file and directly
installing the April 29 pre-beta, Gnucash for Android fails to start.
There is a brief black screen then the apps page re-appears. The first
time there was a list of files to open, but I was not expecting that and
I cancelled. Now it won't go back to that window. That is not the same
as when I manually un-install 1.5.5 before installing the pre-beta.
Going back to one of your other questions, yes, there are many brokerage
accounts with many stock and mutual fund accounts with purchases, sales
and current balances in those securities. I was hoping to just ignore
them for now. My default currency is US Dollars but I may have one or
two expense accounts in CAD from years ago, although I do not use them now.
As for the other question, I do not know how to identify a template. I
remember that I accidentally created one once in release 2.4.something,
and I never succeeded in removing it, but that was long ago. It
continues to pop up when updating security prices. If you can help me
to find it, I should be able to extract it and, if necessary, sanitize
it for your perusal.
