Any way to delete "suggestions" on the Add box

It suggests some things that I have used once or twice, or maybe corrected mispellings... but it keeps showing them as choices.

Also, this has also been annoying to me from Day 1:

When I write in a new item description, I cannot just hit return and be done; no, I have to go to my mouse and click somewhere on the page before it will select my new entry; otherwise it will select the "suggestion".

Suggestions are a great feature; BUT not when they are forced on you unless you go to your mouse to NOT choose them.

you can turn off the auto-complete for descriptions by clicking on the settings link, and then on the general settings link on that page. On the general settings page, use the drop down menu to select "Disabled" for "Auto-complete for adding transactions". Then click on Save Settings. You will no longer need to worry about the description field auto-completing based upon your history of text you've entered in the past.

Not to necro-post this, but I'm also having similar problems.

i don't want to turn off auto-complete altogether; I want to delete specific items (especially misspelled items.)

Is there a way to see my autocomplete list and erase specific items? Is there a way to clear the AC list altogether and start from scratch?

I am wondering this same thing. I'd like to delete some of the auto complete entries and can't figure out how.

The only way I've found to do this is through the web version. When typing in the payee field, you will be presented with auto-complete. Click the x to the right side, and it will remove it from auto-complete.

Removing auto-complete items is a premium feature.
