    Continuing from above, because the above got posted without me actually clicking 'post comment'...and now this interface will not allow me to edit/save the original post above...

    Both QuickFill and Auto-Categorization should be OFF by default and also user-controllable (with memory of last setting).

    If a user desires Quickfill, then they can enable it.
    If a user desires Auto-Categorization, then then can enable it.

    This should hold true for desktop version and any syncing to the cloud.

    Just to make it clears, the ability to turn off auto-categorization already exists for downloaded transactions. Preferences > Connected Services and uncheck the option that states:
    'Automatically Improve the Quality of Downloaded Payee Names and Categories'

    Yes that option exists but does not always work. Some downloaded transactions still get auto categorized. This happened to me today.

    Re-wording that option to be more specific about what the user is really setting would be a good enhancement too. :)

    Doesn't work. I still have to click each and every entry to keep it from autofilling. Is there any way to fix this?

    I strongly agree that QuickFill should be OFF by default.

    Agreed. Automatic everything should be an opt-in. There could be wizards or enrollment options to help people choose the features that really help them but in general, Quicken is about managing your finances. There's a level of detail that people who choose to use this tool want. If you want everything hands off and automated, there may be a better tool out there. At the very least, being able to make the choice is key.
