As I understand it, pressing the <Enter> key in the transaction register 
(I use the "auto-split" configuration), can do one of two things (as set 
in "Preferences"):

 1. Move down one line.  In an "auto-split" configuration, this moves
    you to the next line in the split.
 2. Move to the bottom of the register, to a (blank) new transaction.

Since pressing <Enter> ALSO saves the current transaction, that means to 
me that I'm now DONE with editing that transaction, thank you.  I would 
now like to move to the NEXT transaction. Unfortunately, there appears 
to be no way to configure <Enter> to do that.  Instead, I have to 
repeatedly press <Enter> (or other screen navigation key).  Ugh.

So, unless I am missing something, this is an enhancement request:  
Provide an option for <Enter> to move to the next transaction in the
