Bills and Income Shows Credit Balance Wrong

In the Bills & Income tab, my online credit card account with a positive/credit balance (in my favor) shows as a balance due (-$50 in red, instead of $50 in black).  Quicken bug?

    Yes - this is a reminder, and I have it set to show the credit card balance.   It's showing $50 due, instead of a $50 credit balance.  It's shown correctly elsewhere.
    There is indeed a Quicken bug in the sign of the estimate amount of the credit card balance displayed on the Bills (and Bills, Income & Transfers) views on the Bill & Income tab when there is positive balance.

    The account balances shown in the views on the Bill & Income tab include reminders.

    Thanks Sherlock.  Not a huge deal, but seems like an easy fix!  Even zero balance credit card accounts could be handled better.

    Quicken has always had issues with bill reminders that include transfers.

    There is also an estimate inconsistency apparent when we edit the reminder: select Edit this instance and all future instances  It appears as if there was some recognition of the estimate issue in the reminder but the adjusted amount was not appropriately propagated.
