Some type of writing that says "Gnucash enforces the industry standard of double-entry accounting. You may have been using a package which works differently, and if you have been using X Y or Z we recommend that you read about double-entry accounting before you start." (Links to suitable sites) This would be preferable to no information - and perhaps drop by one third the number of queries here which have started with a misunderstanding about accounting and blame the program.
