Coming from 20+ years of Quicken for Windows experience and switching over to the Mac version.  Would nice to be able to print out the category list instead of having to do screen prints.

    Is there a way to print a copy of the category list to review for modifications? I set up a dummy test account and wanted to review the default categories Q for Mac establishes. Since I have no transactions on this account the report listings are of no help. Any suggestions?

    Unfortunately, your only option is to take screenshots of the Categories window.

    Thanks, that's what I figured my only option would be. Bummer. Another thing to add to the wish they would improve upon.....

    Here is another work-around to consider. (I'm on Quicken for Mac-Deluxe, v.6.1.1) TechSmith makes a screen capture utility they call Snagit. It has the ability to capture a long list like Categories. I used it today since I share the same frustration coming from Windows that i can't print a category list on the Mac version. It seemed to work very well. Watch how your lines print. I noticed some cut-off of text at tops and bottoms of some pages but you can watch for that. It's not as slick as if the function were built-in to Quicken but it appears to be helpful. (To get to Categories: Act like you are going to add a new item in the register then click on the split icon. Click on the 1st detail line and then on the drop-down arrows. Go to the very end of the list and click on Edit Categories.)

    Forget my last post on Snagit. The scroll function I described is somehow leaving out many lines of data when it comes to the print version. Looks like my work-around is just creating a mess of a different kind. They do have a screen paint feature and that seems to be working w/o deleting data from the print job. The catch is you have to print each screen segment of the categories list one at a time.
