Hi Brendon,
Hi Jack,

I think I prefer this to the "Cleared Count" since this number doesn't tell me much the way I use KMM. So for example where you now show 6+15 I would like to see 6+21.
OK, that's another approach to it.

I see that you are indeed making use of it.

In my example above 6+21 tells me I have 6 missing receipts and 21 transactions since I last reconciled this account.

I see.

Well, you are right, it might not be a screen killer…

The way it is now is a little confusing and I separate columns would eliminate the confusion without having to read the manual.
I see your points.

Obviously not. :)

So, well, I'll try to make it close to perfect and implement these three opt-in columns.

I am open to suggestions as to which symbols I should use in the corresponding column header cells, since the number of icons is so big that I might not have found the most suitable ones yet. I actually thought about using perhaps emblem-new.png or emblem-important.png from /opt/local/share/icons/oxygen/16x16/emblems from port oxygen-icons…
