User interface changes compared with the old VT Transaction
VTT+ is based on the same principles as the old VT Transaction. However, superficially VTT+ may appear to be different because all the dialogs and report windows have been re-written.
The Home Page window is displayed by default whenever a company is opened. This window serves three purposes:
It gives an immediate visual indication of which company is open
It contains instructions for new or inexperienced users of VTT+. For instance, the Invoicing tab contains instructions for creating and printing sales invoices
It lists all transactions entered with the most recent on top so you can see what you have just done
If you do not want to display the Home Page window (perhaps you think it clutters things up), simply turn it off by un-ticking the check box at the bottom of the window.
In VTT+, you can click with the left mouse button on any text that is shown in blue to display more detail (a bit like a web page).
In VTT+, wherever you see an entry or a transaction in any window/report you can click on it with the right mouse button to display a pop-up menu with the following options:
Edit Transaction (display a dialog where any aspect of the transaction can be changed)
Change Type (eg from PAY to CHQ or whatever)
Make Reversal Copy/Raise Credit Note
Pop-up menu showing the edit commands
The Edit Transaction dialog
The Query menu has been renamed the Display menu.
All reports in VTT+ are on-screen reports and so the commands on the Print Other Reports sub-menu of the File menu in the old VT Transaction have been moved to the Display menu.
A few new buttons have been added. You can see what these do by hovering the mouse over them. The various Display Account buttons have been grouped with the relevant transaction entry buttons. For instance, the Display Bank Account button now appears after the cash entry buttons.
There are now two buttons for sales invoices (SIN and SIN). The underlined one is for creating/printing sales invoices and the other is for entering sales invoices that have been externally produced.
You can now have an unlimited number of custom transaction types, and so the CTA and CTB buttons have been replaced by a single CTX button with a drop down list.

The sales and purchase ledgers have been renamed Customers and Suppliers. Non-accountant users found the old names confusing.
