It would be nice to be able to customize report formatting as follows:
  • ability to change fonts and font sizing on different parts of the report (like in QM2007) image
  • ability to change title 
  • ability to hide title
  • option to 'Shrink Wide Pages to Fit" like in QM2007
  • ability to resize columns
  • ability to add a page break where needed
  • ability to access and adjust these options on the report directly to see the immediate impact
Requests for other formatting options have been added here: (If you find this feature helpful, please be sure to click "VOTE" above to increase the count of this post and therefore its visibility to other users and to the developers.)

    Please put ‘report printing’ or ‘output’ high on the updating list.  Reporting should be like Q2007, clean & concise with the minimum amount of paper when printing.  Also, please give users the ability to change fonts, their sizes, and colors in the reports.  Thank you!

    Here Here! I've been complaining about reporting on QM ever since I converted from QM2007. My year end report on 2007 would print on 6 pages, QM17 same report...28 pages. Ugh!

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Allow adjust of column size on reports.Would like to adjust the columns width on printed reports.  As it is now when I attempt to print report of transaction the account takes up half the page.  My account names are not that long. The current setup prevents me from having all the info on one page.  Work around is to export csv file and print from Numbers.

    Report customization is key! Page Breaks, Font Size, Column width, Bold & color text options. Report customization should be a big priority with development team.

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why is it taking so long to get some customization for report printing on QM18?.QM18 is great except for the ability to customize report printing. A report that was 20 pages on Q2007 is over 196 pages when printed with QM18!

    merged from "User Formatting of Quicken for Mac Reports"

    I used Quicken for Windows for many years before I bought my iMac and became used to having quite a lot of the report formatting under user control. Quicken for Mac reporting could be so much more user friendly with some simple additions such as: making graphs optional; report titles printing on each page (optional); control of font & size; control column widths; and control of pagination. l would like to submit a simple Net Worth Report to show how unprofessional that report looks now and how simple it would be to make it look so much better. Can this be done?

    I used Quicken for Windows before I bought my Mac. There are a lot of features in the Windows version that I would like to see in the Mac version.

    Export a budget report to Excell.

    Change font on reports especially the budget report. I am 82 years old and have trouble reading the report. Also, be able to change the font colors.

    Be able to select the data range for the budget report. Such as Jan 1 thru June 30, not get the whole year.

    I don't use Quicken for investing or downloading. Just use it for simple banking and budgeting. It would be great if there was a simple way to start a new year with the prior year categories and just uncleared transactions.

    Thank you

    @stan and @Woods37 There are "old" and "new" reports in Quicken Mac. The old reports are the ones on the bottom of the Reports menu. They were inherited from the Quicken Essentials predecessor program to the current Quicken Mac, and have little-to-no formatting capability. Over the past few years, the developer shave been working on a new reports engine that gives users greater control over output. These are the "Create…" options on the Reports menu. The new reports overlap the old reports, but aren't complete enough for them to remove the old reports yet. But wherever possible, you should use a new report.
    • All new reports can be exported to Excel
    • You can set custom date ranges, as well as filter selected accounts, payees or tags
    • You can't change the font, but…
    • You can hide and show columns
    • You can rearrange the order of the columns
    • You can change the width of the columns
    • When printing, you can control scaling so the report will be 1 or 2 pages wide
    Hopefully in the next few updates, they will create a net worth/balance sheet type new report so they can start removing the old reports that cause users confusion. It's coming; we just don't know how soon.
