Hi Rustler:

Thanks for taking the time and posting your comments. Your feedback is appreciated.

I believe the thinking was that so many people missed the little "adjust value" checkbox in the lower left corner of the older versions that they wanted to make it more prominent in 2011. Just guessing though.

By the sound of things, you'd prefer the old way.

What other things do you see moving backwards as you mentioned?

The new inventory adjust is a step backwards in what is already a very basic inventory system.
When you have to do an adjustment to add a quantity and value (say the boss had some at home and brings them in), this is what is necessary (and it was not this complicated in all previous versions):
1. bring up inventory adjust-value adjustment and write down the present total value
2. now use the quantity and total value adjustment screen to change the quantity and the new total value.
Two step process where before it was one, and that is not the only thing has moved backwards in the user process in this area.
