How to select another journal type in the booking screen

The saved default journal will be selected in the booking screen after a document is tagged. When you want to book in another journal, you can manually select another journal in the booking screen if available. The invoice will then be booked in the selected journal. (If you are not able to change the journal and is grayed out, this is because there is only one journal type. You will see this between the tag given and the comment box).

📌 Important note
The journal displayed in the booking screen is selected at the time of tagging. If the default journal is changed after the document was tagged, this change is not applied and will need to be manually adjusted in the booking screen. When tagging new invoices, it will automatically assign it to the "new" default purchase/sales journal type.
