I'm re-importing as we speak. I haven't reached the duplicate part yet
but I can't help but think that there has *got* to be a better way.
Right no, I'm in the process of mapping stuff to accounts. It's really
annoying to select one, scroll, locate the right account, click, press
ok and then start over.

I think a better way to do this is to split the window in two. At the
top, you have th e imported transactions and at the bottom you have the
account tree. Then, when you click on the transaction at the top, the
bottom portion automatically centers to the currently mapped account. I
think that would improve the user experience dramatically.

Any thoughts? Is this being sent to the right list?
