Downloading a Merrill Lynch account as a checking account

I have my main checking account at Merrill Lynch. Under quicken for Mac 2007 and previous years, I was able to download the ML account and use it including reconciliations as a normal checking account. I do not keep any securities in the account. Since I upgraded to the new Quicken for Mac, I can only download the ML account as a brokerage account, which doesn't appear like a normal cash account. I therefore enter all my transactions rather than downloading them and then reconciling the account manually. This is time consuming and irritating. I am considering closing the ML account and creating a new bank account away from ML, but this will entail a lot of work and also difficulty interfacing with other ML accounts.  
Do you have a solution? I have talked to ML and they do not offer any.
