- The little 3-color circular button to right of the Date Paid field (that would say Reset 'Date Paid' to 'Today's Date' if you hovered the cursor over that button) is missing. This feature has been very useful. I realize that you can choose today's date by clicking within the drop down calendar, but the button was faster (especially when paying multiple bills on the same day).
- The Transaction Date monthly calendar inside the Recurring Transaction box is missing. The calendar is still available as a drop-down box, but I liked it showing up without having to click anything.
- The "Date Paid" and "Date Due" field locations (and their 'hints') have been switched. The new locations don't make sense compared to the old locations in v1.3.3. <== THIS ITEM IS CLEARLY A BUG (and results in the next item not working properly)
- When recording the payment of a bill (using the "Enter Next Occurrence" option) I now only have the ability to change the "Date Due", but cannot change the "Date Paid" ("Date Paid" is now greyed out). This is the exact opposite of what should happen.
While changes 1 & 2 may be intentional design decisions (which I personally don't like, but great minds can disagree!), changes 3 & 4 behave like actual bugs.
Would you let me know if any (or all) of the above are bugs? Or am I misunderstanding how the program is intended to be used.
If #3 is a bug, then simply switching the two field names (and related hints) back to their previous location will effectively 'fix' #4. For now, I'm going to continue to use the field labeled 'Date Due' as my 'Date Paid' field (and vice-versa), based on their previous locations rather than their current titles. That effectively keeps things working as I have always used MMEX in the past.
Note that in the past I have used "Edit Recurring Transaction" to change the data for an upcoming bill (for example the amount due in the next month on an electric bill), and used the "Enter Next Occurrence" to record when I have paid the bill. Having I been using the program incorrectly all these years?
If you don't intend on changing these back (or if you think they won't be fixed for quite a while), would there be a problem if I went back to using v1.3.3 (I don't want to risk corrupting my data by reverting to an old version)?
FYI, I run MMEX under Windows (in case that is relevant to the missing features and/or the ability to safely go back to using v1.3.3).
Let me know if you need screenshots for any of the above issues.
