Memorized entries

I have had this problem for a long time. I have seen this in the discussions and seen the answers. NONE of the suggested solutions are working out for me.

I have lost the ability to do memorized entries. No matter what I tried, it will not come back. I have to type each entry every time no matter how often I have had it before. I think it is a programming error in the app.

I am currently at r. 26.23.

    I don't know what you have tried previously so this is just a wild guess solution that perhaps you have already tried.
    Have you gone into the memorized payee list and lock the payee information? Locking it keeps the information from changing.

    Also, when you have edited payee information have you clicked "done" in the bottom right-hand corner so the edit is saved?

    Please ensure that all optional settings in Quicken pertaining to recall, memorization, automatic categorization and renaming of payee names are enabled. You find those settings in Edit / Preferences / Data Entry & Quickfill and Downloaded Transactions. Additional settings can be found for the detection and processing of transfer transactions in Edit / Preferences / Transfer detection.
    Some Preferences settings may have been lost during installation of a Quicken patch.
