I'm trying to copy some register transactions from account a to account b. In account a I select single or multiple transactions and click on copy transaction(s). then I open account b, right click on new transaction area and "Paste Transaction(s) is grayed out.

this may not be the right zone but didn't see Qicken in the list

Solution:
must have both accounts in same QDF file for this to work.
open account A, Export QIF file to desktop(or anywhere), check account ist and select all users in accounts.
open account B, Import the QIF file created above. now both accounts are together
Select account A, open register, select single or multiple transactions to be moved or copied.
right click on selected transactions and click on Copy Transactions
open account B, right click on new entry area at bottom of rgister and click on Paste Transactions
done!
