Lots of enhancements have been introduced with releases 1.5 and 1.6 of DELT, the software LearnDoubleEntry.org is built on.
Many of them concern the interface that you use when you prepare a journal entry, and have been requested by the users.
A new little icon has been introduced, to allow swapping amounts from the debit column to the credit column. It's handy, because if you are a student you can easily correct an error and if you are a teacher you can easily show what would happen if two amounts were inverted.
A calculator is available when your cursor is in an amount field. Just press the + or the - key to make it appear. If there is an amount already, you can add a value.
If your cursor is in an amount field, other two useful keystrokes are now available:
a) type = to compute the amount that would close the journal entry by making the sum of debits equal to the sum of credits;
b) type ? to get the amount that would close the account you selected on the left field.
Other enhancements concern advanced issues (customization of stylesheet, statement of changes in equity, management of the chart of accaounts, etc.) and deserve future blog posts. Stay tuned!
