6.1. Changing the Register View

GnuCash has several options to change the way the register looks so transactions can be seen more clearly. The default style is the Basic Ledger. This presents a single line view of transactions to allow the most concise view with all the relevant details.

The default view or style can be changed by going to View menu, three radio buttons will select the desired option. When the window closes the style will revert to the Basic Ledger style. To make this change permanent change the style in the Register Defaults tab of the GnuCash Preferences.

The two other options to change the view of the register are; to restrict displayed items with the ViewFilter By ..., and changing the sort order ViewSort Order. Section, “Account Register - View Menu”.
