    Quicken for Mac will open to the last view used. It certainly doesn't default to the Investment Portfolio view. 

    I don't understand "body is require" any more than you do, but if you are seeing such messages, and your file is always defaulting to a view you didn't use last, then it sounds like you data file is problematic. The usual reason for unusual behavior such as this is when users try to share the file/network store/web store the file. The Quicken file really needs to reside on the Mac /user account of the person accessing it.

    Please post back with more details as to the issues you are having. Thanks!

    Quicken Mac always opens the main window on whatever account or account group you have active when you previously quit. If you have your checking account visible when you quit, it should reopen your checking account; if you have the Reports screen open when you quit, when you relaunch, it should reopen to the same screen. Is this not happening for you? You might have a damaged preference file.
