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'.
