Bob, Any feedback is welcome. John Ralls has suggested that the right place for documentation of how the code works is in Doxygen comments in the code itself and I agree with him there. There is a design document in the code which I may be able to add to. For the user documentmation I will be

Hi Frank, I created a stripped OFX import file from one of my bank accounts OFX files and created an version with a few transactions edited and several deleted I now have a series of screenshots of the import matcher after importing the shortened file and then importing the full file so I can do

Frank, One difficulty I have is in separating the interface description from the operational use of it in the case of the import matcher and the import process generally. Geert did a good job of incorporating the essentials in the popup help dialog in the interface and making it largely self

Hi John, Point taken on the documenting the how in the code and what it does in the docs. I have a slight familiarity with Doxygen but no great expertise but there is one way to change that. I'll ty and keep any Help and Tutorial description as general as I can while trying to provide something

To echo one part of John's comment, I recommend that any description of this process belongs in the Guide, and not the Help or on the wiki. Since chapter 3 of the Guide is called "Importing into Gnucash," I would probably suggest to put it there. David T.  On Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 8:56,
