Quicken 2019 for Windows - Customize Reports: How do I hide columns I don't want?

Quicken 2019 Home, Business, Rental   Ver: R17.6; Build: 27,1,17.6
Windows 10 Pro - 64 bit up-to-date

In earlier versions of Quicken, I was able to hide the columns I didn't want to display in my reports. (Generally, I want to hide Num, Memo, Tag & Clr).

I can't find that option in Q2019.  Has it been removed? Moved somewhere other than the Customize Report window? 

Thanks,

Nancy

    Not at my computer , but did you try the gear icon in the upper right of the screen for view register options ?

    Except for the shape of the Customize icon, nothing has changed in many years, provided, of course, that the report has customizable columns ...

    Is Itemized Categories the only place that Show Columns appears?  I've been creating reports from Spending By Category, and Show Columns isn't there.  This doesn't make sense to me.

    From C. D. Bales:

    "I've been creating reports from Spending By
    Category, and Show Columns isn't there".

     

    Show Columns has never has been available in the Spending
    by Category report.

     

     

    "This doesn't make sense to me".

     

    It makes perfect sense to me. None of the columns you
    want to exclude ("Num, Memo, Tag & Clr") ever appear in the
    Spending by Category report. 

     

    The only column that appears in the Spending by Category
    report that is usually selectable is "Category"; and if you removed
    the Category column from the report, the report would be meaningless.

     

    The Spending by Category report is not a transaction-level
    report; and as such, it does not have most transaction columns available. Also
    true of other non-transaction-level reports such as Spending by Payee, Cash
    Flow, and Income & Expense by Category.

     

    The Itemized Categories report on the other hand, is a transaction-level
    report; and you can Customize it to exclude virtually all its columns
    (including "Num, Memo, Tag & Clr").

     

    [If you are drilling down on an amount in the Spending by
    Category report, which then essentially displays a Banking > Transaction report,
    you need to Customize that report to exclude any unwanted columns.]
