Need a little help with one of the last versions of Quicken. Currently plan to be at meeting tonight.

I won't be at the meeting, but use Quicken Essentials 1.7.4 in case you want to ask a question in the forum.

I hope I am doing this correctly. I need help on setting up the register so it will be like a checkbook. Would like the register to be similar to Quicken 5 which was on an older laptop. 5 does not work on my new computer with Mountain Lion.

My cell number 1 541 980 5210 My name is Mary Lou I am 90 so all help is appreciated I have QE 1.7.4 on my computer

Quicken Essentials looks quite different, but we got used to it quickly. It's also been much more stable for us. We use it primarily as a checkbook register.

Some people like Quicken Essentials (for instance Stephen)... others, like me, do not like it. I tried it for a year and found it unpleasant. Your older Quicken will work with Mountain Lion (and Mavericks) but you need to download the $15 "Lion Compatible" version. I see that I posted this information here on the Forum almost exactly a year ago!

"Well actually... there is a Lion and Mountain Lion compatible version of Quicken 7 available for $15 from their website here: http://quicken.intuit.com/support/help/ ... 83769.html. "

So far as I know, that link still works.

According to discussion at Macintouch, Quicken 2007 has been updated again. I'm sure Intuit is reluctant to keep working on such old software, but they apparently are doing just that.

Quicken Mac 2015 is available in the App Store and at a discount from Amazon.
(I opted for the App Store version to take advantage of the easy updating.)

I upgraded my database the other day and it was completely effortless. It does want you to set up a Quicken login, but otherwise was completely uneventful.
At first, I couldn't find where it saved my database file. But inside Quicken, you can change where it's saved, so I just moved it.

The interface is more spread out and type is larger. Some of the cutesy icons are gone. Otherwise it looks a lot like Quicken Essentials.

One potential disadvantage is that you can customize the sidebar, so if you don't have investment accounts, or don't want to keep data on them in Quicken, you'll still have to see the entry in the sidebar. I went to the Quicken site and "voted" to add customization to the sidebar.

Hi, again,

Do you still like the Quicken for Mac 2015?
and any tips re importing data from Quicken 2005 (from what i see from other online discussions, still a lot better--problem is it's not working any more with most banks!!)

thanks,
Lili

We don't import from our bank, so I can't speak to that function.
