You said the work around is to delete and re-add, but does the re-add not
generate the same error? Is this only when editing a previously defined SX?
I’ll admit I’ve only seen this error when actually trying to edit a real
transaction in one account register when I was already “in” the same
transaction in another related account register. (usually after a ‘jump’ menu
instruction) I’ve never seen it in the SX editor.
Dealing with scheduled transactions in concert with this is a bit perplexing,
other than to suggest, as a test to narrow down the cause, close everything but
the Chart of Accounts, THEN open the Scheduled Transaction editor and see if
the same error occurs.
At least, you’ve eliminated (or confirmed) other open accounts as the
possibilities or causes.
Also, please report if you are using the XML or one of the SQL backends just to
clear that up. (should there be a discrepancy)
For myself, all of my scheduled transactions are still working as expected, but
all of them pre-existed my transition from 2.6 to 3.1. I’ve yet to create a new
SX from the 3.x series and to see how it behaves. I also haven’t yet had a need
to edit any of them.
