How to Delete Scanned Document Image

I scanned a document into a line item in a register.  Unfortunately, I scanned the document upside down.  So, using Quicken controls, I rotated the image to be right side up, but I found no way to save it in that position.  Then, I tried to delete the scanned document but found no way to do that.  Next, I scanned a right side up document and found I could delete it.  So, how does one save a rotated image, and how does one delete the first scanned image?

    X in upper right corner

    Add with down arrow in left bottom corner
    Arrow pointing up to right in bottom right corner

    In examining other line items with scanned documents, there is a cloud icon between the Add and up-right pointing arrow.  That cloud icon allows deleting.
    So, it appears the software may have screwed up in my problem case, for there is no cloud icon.  I may have to redo the line item to restore things to normal.

    UPDATE
    Upon further investigation, I found clicking on the spot where the cloud icon should be produced a menu that allowed me to delete scanned image.

  • Thanks for the effort, Sherlock, but I don't think you understand my questions.  I'm talking about using the scan-control paperclip icon in the field under the date field of a line item in a register to scan a document into the line item.  I accidentally scanned the document upside down.  I can rotate the scanned image to right side up but can't save it in that position.  Also, I can't delete the first scanned image but can strangely delete subsequent scanned images.

    When I click on the scan-control paperclip icon in the field under the date field of a line item in a register of a transaction that has an attachment, I see the image that I provided. 

    Which version and edition of Quicken are you using and which version of Windows?
  • I'm using Quicken 2019:
    R18.15
    Build 27.1.18.15

    I'm running Windows 10 on a desktop computer:
    Version 1803
    Build 17134.556

    And, what window opens when you click on the scan-control paperclip icon in the field under the date field of a line item in a register of a transaction that has an attachment?
