Tips and Tricks-The Edit Screens Popup Menus

Our users report that they spend more time entering transferee information in Tally-Up! than performing any other activity.  Tally-Up! has a number of  "popup" menus (menus displayed by clicking the mouse's right-button) to make entering and editing data easier.  This is a review of  the Tally-Up! popup menus in the edit screens, the pages where all transferee data are entered.

There are three popup menu types in the edit screens.  A sample of each of the three types are below.
  

The Expenses Page Popup Menu

All expenses are entered and edited in the Tally-Up! edit screen Expenses page.  The popup menu appears when you click on the expense table (the lower half of the screen) and then right-click on a table cell.

Menu Items Action
Cut Row Moves the entire selected row to the clipboard where it may be pasted into an empty row of the same type, either in this record or another record. Enabled only if the selected row is filled.
Copy Row Copies the entire selected row to the clipboard where it may be pasted into an empty row of the same type, either in this record or another record. Enabled only if the selected row is filled.
Paste Row Pastes a copied or cut row from the clipboard. Enabled only if the selected row is blank, and the clipboard data is of the same type as the current expense table.
Sort By Allows the data in this table to be sorted by the selected column.
Column Widths Allows you to set the column widths for this table.
View Clipboard Allows you to view the current data in the clipboard. Useful if you are not sure of the last data saved to the clipboard.
Edit Payee If the selected column is the Paid To column and the selected payee is in your Frequent Payee list, the Menu item will read "Edit <Payee name>", and Tally-Up! will display the payee card file for that payee. Otherwise, it will display your frequent payee list where you can select a payee to edit.
Pick List Displays the pick list for the selected column. Enabled only if the selected column is either Paid To or Type.
Today's Date Loads the selected cell with the current system date. Enabled only when the selected cell is a date type.
Calendar Displays a pop-up calendar where you may select a date to load in the cell. Enabled only when the selected cell is a date type.

The Notes Popup Menu

The Notes field is a simple mini-editor, where you can enter any data you want.  The notes can be used as a report selection criteria (e.g., Notes contains "mortgage").  In addition, there are special reports that can print note field contents.
