    Since updating to 28.10, the security detail Y axis starts at zero instead of the lowest period value. This causes the graph to be a flat line instead of the more intuitive graph in prior versions. Rolling back to 27.42 restores the graph to the desired display without effect to data file. Please restore the detail graph display to what it was in 27.42

    Why do we need to vote on this? It should be obvious that fixing the Y-axis to zero makes graphs of securities with large values or prices useless for shorter time periods. On price charts, the candlestick indicators become decimal points at the top of the graph area, regardless of the time frame selected. On value charts, for moderate or short time frames, there is just a flat line in the top area of the graph. Graphs are intended to convey trend information, with this change all you can infer for many securities is "no change".

    The old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words is disproven with this change. PLEASE BACK OUT THIS CHANGE

    We need to vote on it because it was apparently an intentional change on Quicken's part introduced recently along with other changes to the security detail view, and thus changing it back would be an improvement, not a bug fix.
