Bug Description

Can the "Transfer" dialog box have a bit of redesign to show both accounts and dates for the and internal transfer transaction please?

The reason I ask is because while the new functionality for mismatched dates on internal transfers is very functional, it feels incomplete without showing the dates of both sides of the transfer in the transaction add/edit dialog.

When changing the date on a transaction, having to open a separate account windows to reflect the change in both is very cumbersome. Sometimes I even forget to do it when manipulating transactions because I forget that the dates can mismatch; there is no visual indicator that it can be done.

This happens a lot when I am forecasting my expenses and transactions, many of which are planned transfers to and from savings accounts.

So it is not only to show the target txn date?
But also to able edit it from both txn dialog ?

Note for me: Maybe I should consider also a checkbox to sync, ans as so if off any change will sync.

I think it makes sense to be able to view and edit both sides of the transfer.

Though there are two entries in the file, conceptually to the user they are strongly linked by being part of a single transaction; one side does not exist without the other side.
