How do I exclude foreign currency from being counted as dollars?

When I used to use Quicken for Windows I could just put the foreign currency accounts as other or exclude them from the total balance, but I could still see their individual balance.  When I first started using a Mac and installed Quicken I thought I saw the option to excluded foreign currency from being counted in the balances, but I can't find that with the upgrades and even before it didn't work even when selected.  Is this a bug or do I need to find an option somewhere not in the preferences? Quicken for Mac 2016 Version 3.5.2 on OS X El Capitan.

    I suspect you're going to have wait until Quicken Mac, in a future version, has learned how to fully support foreign currencies just like it does in Quicken for Windows.

    If I could, I would change this question into an "Idea", but that's a job for a Moderator.

    This was mostly implemented in QM2017 v4.2.1. Now accounts in foreign currency (that is, not in the Home Currency) are automatically excluded from the Net Worth total in the sidebar. 

    The account balance still displays to the right of its name in the sidebar with its currency symbol.

    BUT there are 2 issues:
    - it is not a user selectable option
    - these accounts are still included in the Net Worth in the the upper right corner of the All Transactions register view.

    Net Worth has been corrected as of QM2017 v4.2.1. Option is still not user selectable.

    This features has been implemented in QM2017 v4.2.1, released Oct 2016, as per the 2017 Release Notes but not as an option; it is automatic.

    If you have not, be sure to click VOTE at the top of this page to have this feature implemented as an option. YOUR VOTES matter!

    It appears that this has been implemented in QM2017 4.5.8. However it is not optional; all foreign currency accounts are excluded.
