Help with Auto Loan Payments (Q Mac)

jess8887 Member ✭✭✭
I've setup an auto loan and I have several issues/questions.

(1) My interest rate is 4-digits (3.3912%); however, Quicken appears to limit the interest field to 3-digits (3.391%). Can this be changed?

(2) The payments automatically calculated by Quicken "does not" match my bank's calculation. I assume this is because the difference in interest rates (3.3912% vs 3.391%). Is it possible to adjust the Quicken's scheduled payment to accurately reflect my bank's calculation?

(3) After posting the first scheduled payment, I manually adjusted the transaction (i.e., changed the principle and interest amounts to match my bank's statement). However, the section in the Quicken Payment area (with the pie chart) does not reflected the changes I made. My actual payment breakdown was: (1) principle $257.53 (2) interest $35.29 (3) total $292.82. The Quicken pie-chart shows: (1) principle $265.01 (2) interest $27.53 (3) total $292.54. If I've changed (edited) the posted payment, why is that information not updated in the pie-chart area? See attached image.
