Hey all, just a heads-up that we've rolled out a new release of YNAB. This release is primarily a bug-fix release, to deal with some reported issues. Steam should automatically update you to the latest version.
Don't forget to check out our Free Classes, we've added a couple of new ones this month!

Release Notes

New:
Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-C will now clear selected transactions on the register screen even if the focus is in a text field. 'C' still works when the focus is not in a text field.

Better:
Added a check and warning for attempts to rename payees to 'Transfer :' on the Payee Settings screen.
Removed 'Restart Later' option when toggling diagnostics, preventing a weird half-diagnostic state.
The 'Move to Account' option on the register transaction edit menu is now disabled if there are no other accounts to move the transaction to.
'Save a version' will now always save a new version, even if there's been no changes since the last save.
The Create Budget button is now disabled until a name is entered, preventing blank budget names.
Using Up and Down arrows on the budget page now cycle from top to bottom and vice versa when reaching the start or end of the rows.
Renamed 'Year to Date' filter to 'This Year', to more accurately represent how it works.
Clearing a transaction by mouse now occurs on mouseup, rather than mousedown.
Deleting transactions to be approved by clicking the reminder icon now shows Undo like normal deletions.
OFX/QFX imports are now better at handling non-standard formatting from certain banks.
Fresh Start now resets all account balances to 0, to make re-entering current balances easier.
Categories can no longer be renamed to be blank or only contain spaces.
The 'Starting Balance' payee is now selectable when filtering reports.
The 'Edit Payees' button at the bottom of the payee selector dropdown now jumps to the currently entered payee on the Payee Settings dialog when clicked.
Using 'c' to clear a transaction now works while editing after changing the transaction date

Fixed:
Having a positive Available to Budget combined with using the Indian Rupee would cause the budget columns to be misaligned with the category list.
Fix for Arabic text sometimes causing a crash when viewing reports.
Fixed an error where uncategorised and unaccepted transfers to off-budget accounts could be ignored when calculating the uncategorised row in the budget.
Fixed a grammar mistake in a message preventing you from moving reconciled transactions.
Finishing or canceling reconciliation now correctly applies the existing date filter to the register.
Unmatched transactions now retain their original flag colour.
The All Outflows summary tooltip on the budget screen now includes split transactions.
The automatic, rolling backups could get deleted too frequently, especially if you ran YNAB very frequently. From now on, YNAB will keep backups hourly for a week, daily for a month, and every 15 days from then on.
Fixed a bug that could cause YNAB to stop auto-saving in some circumstances after a Fresh Start. (It would still save on exit, but would not publish changes to other devices or save work every 5 seconds as designed)
Added more space so the date filter is not cut off when printing the account register.
Register keyboard shortcuts are no longer handled if the Preferences or Budget Setup screens are showing
Unmatching a reconciled transaction via the 'Unmatch' button no longer removes the imported transaction.
Removed 'YNAB 3' reference from sample CSV file
Fixed several other rare crash bugs, including: a crash that could happen when trying to restore an invalid backup version, after importing, when changing the default Cloud Sync budget location, when switching budgets while a report was loading, when hitting ESC in a date field, renaming a category that had been hidden on another device, and when using characters instead of numbers in a date field.

- On Macs, if an update is available or is being downloaded, the update window will be shown if you click on the YNAB icon in the dock.

- Improved the way certain rare file errors are handled.
- Creating an adjustment transaction to a debt account will now create a pre-ynab debt category if necessary.
- Entering a starting balance transaction of 0 will still create a pre-ynab debt category for debt accounts. That way, if you later change the amount of the transaction manually, it's still categorized correctly.
- If a budget in Dropbox can't be loaded, a button is displayed that links to a support article explaining how to fix the error.
- Clicking on the empty search box expands it so you have more room to enter your search.

- The All Accounts view will no longer show the old categories for accounts that were on budget and then made off budget.
- Fixed a bug that could cause the loading screen to be shown forever if an error happened the first time it was attempting to create the budget.
- Fixed a bug that could cause YNAB to create an empty budget folder for a budget that was previously opened if the YNAB folder was moved out from under it.
- Transfer payees to deleted accounts are now deleted on startup. These could cause a crash when attempting a rename or combine to remove them from the payee settings screen We no longer allow WiFi sync if you don't have any accounts in your budget, preventing a rare crash.
- Saved report settings now recalculate the date range correctly when reopening YNAB.
- Clicking away from an empty search box no longer clears the date filter.

- Leaving the trial version of YNAB open for several days no longer prevents you continuing the trial without having to restart YNAB.
- The transaction list shown by clicking on the Total row in the Spend By Category report now filters out portions of split transactions that aren't included in the total.
