    Hello @xowig

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. When you're splitting your transactions in your Split box you should see in the bottom left a button that says add lines. This will add another 5 lines at a time so that you're able to continue splitting transactions. I'll leave a photo below.

    Please let us know if this helps resolve the issue for you.

    AFAIK, there's a limit of about 250 Split lines per transaction.
    And there may still be a limit on how many of those Split lines can use the same Category. In the past there were a couple of reports of crashes in Quicken when customers tried to record a transaction with more than 38 lines using the same category. I'm not sure if that has ever been fixed or not ...
    May I ask what kind of a transaction you're creating that requires more than 30 Split lines? There may be an easier way ...

    Extending @UKR's remark,  if you're  inputting all of your credit card transactions,. as  split lines, into the payment transaction ... there's a MUCH better way.
    But first, we'd need a response as to why you need so many split lines.

    I'm using Quicken deluxe 2003 so there is no facility to add lines as shown in the photograph.
    I am splitting my credit card transactions and I would be very interested in your "MUCH better way".
    Thanks again
