Q Mac vs Q Windows for options trading

I converted to QM a little over a year ago after using QW for over 20 years.  It worked fine until I started momentum trading options on Fidelity.  It isn't unusual for me to have 10 or more options transactions a day.  QM does a very poor job with options.  I can easily spend 20-30 minutes fixing things.  

I'm wondering if anyone that trades options frequently has experience with both QM and QW and can comment on whether going back to QW is something that might help me with this issue.

    Going back to QW will be very painful since the Mac to Win conversion is very flawed and will require a lot of work to get it straightened out.

    In short, transaction categorization has a tendency to get badly scrambled and investment data does not get imported by QWin (even though they are exported by QMac).
