Hello everybody!

First post here, excited about gnuCash, just started (using 1.9.6 on
Kubuntu 5.10).


1) Credit card installments
Trying to keep track of my credit cards. Most of my purchases are on a
multi-installment basis, i.e. "plasma tv, eur 2000, 36 monthly
installments of the same amount".

Is there a way to do this automatically? I was thinking about something
in the lines of:
Open up a wizard, record a purchase with "Liabilities - Credit cards - X
card" versus "expenses - home - electronic equipment". The wizard asks
if this is a recurring payment, I answer yes, then asks the time
interval (month) and the number of re-occurrences (35) and that's it.

2) Loan calculations
Same thing (and worse) with loans or mortgages. Manually entering twelve
monthly payments for 25 years is a lot of work, I am sure there's some
way to do this automagically - is there?

Thanks and best regards,

Stratos Laspas
