Capability of inserting rows in journal entry.

I would like for this functionality to be added as it would make journal entry a lot easier. Being able to keep journal entry sets together helps with reconciliation and being able to make sure my debits and credits are in balance within the entry set. The way it is set up now doesn't allow for this, as we are only able to add additional lines at the top and everything pushes down. So if I have a payroll entry numbered 1 thru 5 and then add additional payroll entries (6 thru 15) and I realize I missed recording overtime on the entry number 1 thru 5, I would like to be able to go and insert line 6 and add the missing information and the numbering for the other entries to renumbered instead of the missing entry being line 16!

    Journal entries are backup which could be referred to in the future, sometimes multiple times. Not having the flexibility to add rows/lines wherever we need them, so that the entry flows in logical order, makes it very difficult to analyze an entry, especially a lengthy one. I don't recall ever working with an accounting program that didn't allow you to do this (including database view).
