Thanks, all, for advice. Just not happening, though. I can see the latest file in a directory, but get "file not found" when clicking on it. By now, a lot of lost work. Am I correct in assuming that unlike commercial software, gnucash doesn't save itself back to the application automatically, even if you "save" automatically? In other words, what you're paying for is not to deal with the log files, but to save and then later click on the icon and have it be where and as you left it?
Gnucash is more accessible than Quickbooks from within (e.g., all accounts have registers), though the "save" complexity, and existence of multiple text files, log files, etc., to be managed aren't mentioned in the manual/tutorial. I'm accustomed to assuming that it's all user error, e.g., life itself -- correct in this instance? Is there a patch to save and access Gnucash like a commercial, e.g. Intuit, program?
