How to match transactions automatically?

How can you get Quicken to match transactions automatically? If I pay a credit card bill from my checking account, there is a matching transaction in the credit card account. Quicken will always assign the wrong category and I'll have to manually change to a transfer to match.

    Quicken seems to always set specific payees to the same (random) category, which I have to change every single time. How can I get the payee assigned to a specific category? This seems so basic.

    Didn't see this was a Mac question. Don't know if Mac supports Memorized payees.

    Try to go to "Tools" + "Memorized Payee List" and edit the payee with the good category.

    Thank you. That explains it. Wasn't logical such a basic feature was missing from the product.
