Stumbled over the "Info" entry after noticing the (American - check) is spelled (British?? - cheque) in the manual. Searching for cheque in the manual eventually gets results.

Perhaps a more informative title than "info" could be provided, at least in the manual. Found the description in the 'Automatic cheque numbering' confusing also - probably because it doesn't even mention that the check number entry go in the 'info' box.

GREAT PROGRAM!!

Not exactly "simple" - but FAR better than most of the accounting programs I've looked at!!!! Not a trained accountant, just need to get a wide range of accurate information and this is actually reasonable to use and is works well on my Debian and Win10 systems. Have tried, and discarded, things like Quickbooks and GNUCash as far beyond my level, but able to use lots of HomeBank 'right out of the box'. Many others available only for one of Win or Linux, need particular display system, limited documentation, not understandable

Long-ago-and-far-Away Amigo user, JUST RIGHT levels of power, and workability, and readability. Amigo influence still shows.

Thanks,
Ron

If you haven't found it yet, you can change the HomeBank language to that which you prefer: US English, British English, or other. See Edit > Preferences > Locale > User Interface to choose.

My HomeBank system was already set to US English. It is the User Manual (with no choices) which has to problem.

Can you help with this problem?
