The main screen has a calendar for selecting the current date. Once the current
date is selected, you can only create, edit or view vouchers in the current
financial year. To shift to another financial year you must change the date in
the main screen.

Under chart of accounts, you can add, edit, empty, delete or shift accounts. You
cannot add or paste an account to a non-empty branch. Empty the branch and then add the
account. You cannot delete a non-empty account - empty or shift it first. Some
accounts are fixed and cannot be deleted or modified. It is advisable to set up
at least one bank account under 'bank'.

Edit: edit the name of the account
Empty: delete all vouchers under that account
Shift: move all vouchers under one account to another
Copy: copy the account
Paste: paste the account to an empty branch.

Under chart of accounts double click on any account to get either the ledger
summary or the ledger. In the ledger or in the journal you can edit the
individual vouchers

Vouchers are entered in the journal voucher mode, or you can define your own
voucher templates in the custom voucher mode. You can use these templates to
generate custom vouchers using the 'generate' button.

You can open any number of voucher templates or journals, ledgers and ledger
summaries at the same time. You can use the refresh button on the reports to see
what you have updated.

You must have an unique serial number for a voucher. This serial number cannot
be edited. You have to delete and recreate the voucher if you want to change the
serial number.

Year Closure is implemented in the balance sheet. You can close the financial
year as many times as you want.
