Drag and Drop Separate and Hidden Accounts

ECL Member ✭✭
The new Separate, Hidden, and Closed Accounts feature is great but when the feature was introduced Quicken arbitrarily categorized all my Hidden accounts as Separate. To remove that setting I have to manually open each account's settings panel and manually uncheck the Separate checkbox.

My suggestion is to allow drag and drop in the Accounts side bar panel so I can just drag an account from/to Separate and from/to Hidden.

    You actually didn't need to open each account's settings. If you open menu Accounts  > Hide and Show Accounts, there is a checkbox for Keep Separate for each account in the list. You can run down that list and quickly uncheck those that should not be separate.

    Also, account drag and drop in the sidebar could be problematic as people would be trying to drag accounts from Hidden to say, Savings, even though it may be the wrong account type for Savings.

    I would not archive this because it includes a comment on a very useful work-around. Instead, if nothing else, it should be turned into a question thread.
