Ah! So there is! That's bang-up what I wanted. I apologize for suggesting
in haste that such a feature did not exist, when in fact it had already
been thoroughly explored. With the filters, it's even a substantial
improvement on Quicken's offering (at least, the one from 7 years ago).
Well, thanks for pointing that out.
What do you think about just the 'bug' then:

It seems to me that selecting a limited date range should also limit the
scope of the 'balance' calculated, because for 'income' and 'expense'
account types [and ONLY for these types], what is really meant by
'balance' is 'accumulation'.
