I can enter expenses, but I cannot enter deposits. How do I do that?

I have used Quicken for many years in a pre-2008 version, which was easy to use, but is no longer supported on my Mac. The new version seems harder to me. How do I enter deposits?

    I find the newer version much easier after you get used to it.

    If you are referring to the single "Amount" column-that is nice as it serves double duty. Expense categories will automatically be entered as negative, and Income categories will automatically be assigned as positive.

    If you need to override this (such as for entering a return, etc.), simply hit the correct sign (+/-) before the amount.

    While you can choose to display separate columns for inflows/outflows, I suggest you give the Amount column a try. I find it much easier visually and it saves space.

    If the amount column was not what you were reffing to, please post back.
