    In Qmac along with suggested option to have a confirmation dialog when changing a transaction, it would be nice to have the option in preferences to select sounds, e.g., when a transaction is entered or deleted.

    I have been using Quicken for Windows for many years. Recently converted to Quicken for Mac. In Quicken for Windows there was a cash register sound when you made an entry. Is there any similar sound for Mac?

    I have went to preferences and do not see anything to put on Quicken sounds. Any other suggestions?

    There are no sounds in Quicken Mac, except for deleting a transaction, which makes a "whoosh" sound. This is not new; it's been this way since the modern Quicken Mac program debuted in 2015, so I'm not sure what sounds you're thinking of that you want back.

    No, that's the sound that is now silent. There isn't a "whoosh" sound when deleting transactions. I just deleted one this morning and still no sound.

    Having used Quicken for Windows for 19 years I really like and have come to depend on the transaction sound made when you finish entering a transaction. It looks like the only sound that Quicken for Mac makes is when you delete a transaction. That would be superb if this can be added to the Mac maybe under a "sound" preference tab. I find it really helpful.

    If anyone has any workarounds for this through AppleScript or Keyboard Maestro or something similar I would love to hear about it.

    There needs to be a sound generated when entering a transaction on Mac. Always had one on Windows for 20 years.
