Thanks for the suggestion David. I had read something similar on the
list archives, but it doesn't work for me. If I type, say,
S-a-x-<backspace> I end up with "Sa" in mixed case. But as soon as I
type the following "v" I end up with "SAVE ON FOODS ..." with the
cursor positioned after the "V".
I using GC 2.2.6 on XP SP3.

I have been bothered by the Autofill Autocrat as well. Personally, I am annoyed

it so that imported entries NOT get added to the Autocrat's buffer...
The only thing I can point out is that if you type a different character and im
mediately delete it, the mixed case version remains and is saved. If you're doi
ng a lot of the same entries, you can copy and paste, although here again you h
ave to type an extra character and delete it, since the Autocrat steps in on th
e paste job too.

There is something about the register that drives me crazy.
this question will reveal to all that I suffer from Tiny
but stupid is as stupid does.
I download transactions from my chequing and credit card
the manual OFX import. As GC has no concept of vendor, the
is important to me, so for common vendors I like to have a
consistent description. Often the description that
downloaded transactions is not what I want. For example,
say I have some
SAVE ON FOODS #953 HOPE
SAVE ON FOODS #989 SPUZZUM
Now lets say I have a few of these in the registry. If I
try to retype
the descriptions to be:
Save On Foods
As I attempt to change the description, the auto-complete
feature of GC
changes my mixed-case typing into all uppercase to match
entries. The only solution I have found is to do something
like add a
trailing space and save the description, and re-edit it to
what I want
and then remove the trailing space. This is obviously a
pain. If I
happen to have numerous entries, then I have to go through
for each entry until they are all changed.
Is there a convenient way to suppress (1 time only) the
handy auto-completion of the Description field?
