Turning off on-line actions/activities
I've started getting familiar with "new" Quicken for Mac (5.12.2). All too often, and for too long, at unpredictable times I get the spinning beach ball (for instance, just in switching from one account to another.) On a hunch, I turned off my wi-fi so I was off-line, and the spinning beach ball didn't come up anymore. I don't want to completely disconnect my machine for the internet just to improve Quicken's performance. Is there any way to tell it to "go off-line" once it has verified my account (if it needs to.) I don't download any transactions or use on-line bill paying; I haven't decided whether I want to use the mobile app, but even if I did it would only have to go on-line to update the Quicken Cloud database every now and then. Actually, I wouldn't mind, and would prefer, not have my data in the cloud at all.
