File Menu Commands
This page lists all of the Goldenseal File menu commands in the Goldenseal accounting software and business management software.
New Business File-- Creates a new Business File. Use the New Business File command when you first start using Goldenseal, if you want to fill in a completely empty file.
HINT-- To save setup time, start with a Starter File instead.
Sign On/Sign Off-- If you are signed on with a password, Sign Off allows you to leave Goldenseal. If nobody is currently signed on, Sign On allows you to open a file with your user name and password.
NOTE-- If this file does not use passwords, the Sign On/Sign Off menu command is disabled.
HINT-- If you want to switch to a different part of Goldenseal, you don't need to close the current window. When you open a new window, Goldenseal will place it in front of other windows. To bring a different window to the front, choose its menu command, or choose it from the bottom of the View menu (Macintosh) or Windows menu (Windows).
HINT-- Goldenseal remembers the position of windows. When you re-open a file, the windows will reopen at their previous location.
Save As Text-- Saves data in the active window as a text file. You can use this command to save text from any account or transaction. You can then open the text file with a word processor or spreadsheet program.
Save A Copy-- Saves a copy of the entire business file. Use the Save a Copy command to make a backup copy. You'll be asked for a file name, and a location on your hard drive. When you click Save, a copy will be saved there.
HINT-- You don't need to quit if you plan to use another program, but want to come back to Goldenseal.
