Bug Description

Hi Maxime,
Thank you again for this product. I use it at least a few times a week. One feature that you could consider adding is to bold the lowest balance value in the check register when projecting balance. That would be very useful. I always skim my future balance to see the lowest value and since all the values are the same color, it is easy to skim past it but if the lowest value, in the future balance, is bold or a different color, it would be very easy to spot.

Another suggestion that would be great is if the payment type was right after the date in the Add Transaction dialog. Using the output of the payment type, could provide the "+/-" for the amount. This would remove the error when you forget to make a deposit positive or a debit negative, don't realize it, and then later have to hunt down why your balance isn't correct.

Thanks again for all of your work on this product and I hope you have a Happy New Year,

Carl

Sorry, just getting back home. I don't have a beta home app running, only
my production so I am not comfortable showing the screen with the cash
transactions but it is the screen where you add you daily account
transactions that has the Payee, Category, Status, Expense, Income, and
Balance. The Balance column is the one that I suggested making the lowest
balance into the future bold.

Thanks,
Carl
