When I hit Alt-T, it works like you think it should. Is it possible that you accidently defined a keyboard shortcut of Alt-T to the Account Summary report? If you did, to get rid of it, press the delete key while the menu item is highlighted. From the tutorial section 2.3.7: GnuCash, as a Gnome application, also allows you to define your own menu shortcuts. To define a shortcut, click on the menu header and move the mouse pointer over the menu item. While the menu item is highlighted, press a key or key combination to set the shortcut. You should now see your shortcut choice next to the item in the menu. To delete a shortcut, press the Delete key while the menu item is highlighted. http://www.gnucash.org/docs/v1.8/C/gnucash-guide/basics_interface1.html#basics_options2 When I tried re-assigning Alt-T to generate a report instead, hitting Alt-T generated the report. After I deleted that shortcut, Alt-T did nothing until I exited gnucash and restarted. After that, it worked as expected again. That's probably a bug, but so minor I'm not sure it's even worth filing. --Beth +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ + Beth Leonard + + O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave + + O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? + +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
