This is the way kmymoney is working for as long a I know it. It has a global
selection of account, transaction, payee and other stuff upon which the actions
are performed and can be performed from the whole application. I agree that it
could be confusing to run a 'Delete transaction' when you are not actually
viewing the transaction but trying to limit the selections to only those views
that render that particular selection would be a work that could not be
The solution for the home view would be a simple reset selections when going
there but that would mean that by going trough the home view one would loose
his selections and I don't agree with that.
Other solutions would be enabling the actions depending on the active view but
that would be again error prone. Maybe the home view could render the current
account selection but that would leave the transaction/payee issue unsolved.
And I didn't even mention the other views which render selective information.
With this being said I would vote for leave it as it is because I don't see a
solution that wouldn't be subjectable to criticism in the same way as the
current behavior is.
