How to merge two accounts

I just moved from Windows to Mac, and my bank accounts were successfully transferred over. But when I downloaded the account updates from the bank, Quicken created new account names and put the updated data in those, so now I have two accounts for checking (old and new), two for the credit card, savings, CD's, etc.

 I would like to merge these dual accounts back into single accounts, but I don't know how to do it.

    You can simply click and drag transactions from one account to the other. You can do it one at a time or choose a selection; standard selection techniques apply: shift-click fro range or command-click for adding individual entries to selection.

    Yes, click and drag works, but many (not all) of the transactions are still in the old account, and the moved transactions all have a red pen icon on the left hand column which is very annoying.  I suppose I can delete the transactions in the old account, but after spending hours trying I am unable to clear the red pen icons.

    I used copy/paste to move transactions from one account to another as described above.  However, I had to reply in window that i wanted to delete the reconciled transaction for EACH transaction.  This was a burdensome task for a large account.  The window should have a yes-to-all check box.
