Re: Forgetting to post printed/mailed invoices: add Print+Post button?

Great idea, at least with respect to the Post command.
For Update I don't consider it very useful, but who am I...
But, configurability of this option in the Preferences or System menu
seems a must to me, so pple won't have to keep checking or unchecking
check boxes with every Print or Email command.

Another thing... Many times I am behind schedule with entering
transactions from previous days and I guess I'm not the only one. 
So when processing date 'x' while it is date 'y' , one has to keep
changing the date to 'x'. I would be nice if the next transaction would
automatically take over the date of the previous transaction, and not
the current date of the system. Once one proceeds to date 'x+1', it is
only needed to change the date once, and the next transactions for that
date will have the correct date already filled out. If the same would
happen in the payment date fields of AP and AR, life would be simpler
and work would go faster. For me, that is.
