accounting - no more move_line_view  (Journal Items) - these are only available in "developer mode" !!!! ????? Advisor -
IMO  journal items must be accessible for each accountant.

Actually, you get an access to Journal Items through the General Ledger report, which is how the accountant usually work. Reports like P&L, Chart of Accounts, ... allows you to zoom to the general ledger when clicking on an account. In the general ledger, if there are a lot of entries, you can zoom to the list view.

We think that a list/form view of all Journal Items (not the report) is a rather technical feature. Most accountants will search through Journal Entries. If you check accounting software like Xero, Quickbooks, they only provide the Journal Entry view, not the Journal Items. That's why we moved Journal Items to the technical features. As it's a technical view, we prefer accountant to work in Journal Entries or General Ledger. (which is designed to be userfriendly)

Note: we missed something in the journal entry search: filter on an account. This will be fixed today.
