Hmm.... You have a point there, but here's the thing: I opened an account, and
downloaded 2012 transactions instead of 2013 by mistake. In 2013 I have 3
transactions, in 2012 I have 3000. Expecting the user to remove 3000
transactions is absurd if you can do it automatically. I understand its a
design decision, but as I said - its a counter-intuitive one. There's nowhere I
can see why the menu is disabled, and because I created all the accounts with
opening balances - it is disabled on all of them. Taking opening balance as a
transaction is a logical thing to do for a programmer, but counter-intuitive to
a user, Having doing it both way (as a programmer, and ex-QA in banking
system), this is a usability bug to say the least.

But thanks for the explanation, it does help me to overcome the issue for me.
I'm with you closing this if you don't want to change the behavior, but I'd
wish it was more clear to the end user (maybe a floating tip text for the menu
item or something like that?)

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
