Limits on the number of securities

I have seen a number of postings indicating that Quicken limits the number of securities to 2000. I have over 4000. They system seems to working fine. Should I try to eliminate old or unused security symbols or stick to the "If nots broke then don't fix it" philosophy?

    I’d stick with what you have. There has always been vagueness to that limit and I don’t believe it applies to the subscription version.

    Another downside to reduction is that to remove a security from the list, you would have to delete the transactions that used that security, therefore you would be losing history.

    thanks. I saw some securities w/o transactions Maybe they were typos. I think I'll clean those up and leave the rest alone.
