Residual Reminders from MAC Transfer

I transitioned from Quicken on Mac to Quicken on Windows. I used a transfer file to move the banking information over. The reminders and paychecks did not transfer, so I re-entered them into the Windows version. In the Bill and Income reminders, I now have many residual reminders that will not allow me to edit or remove. These residuals are interleaved with the bills and income items that are currently input into my Windows Quicken.

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words …
    Can you please capture one or more images of the parts of your Quicken window showing the issue, sensitive information blacked out as necessary to protect your privacy but annotated to describe the situation, and attach the image(s) here?


    Please save images to files of file type PNG, JPG, or GIF only. They're easier to work with than PDF files.

    What version, edition level and release of Quicken are you using?   US or Canadian version?

    The windows version is Quicken - Deluxe, version R31.20, build The Mac version the information was transferred from was Quicken Deluxe Version 6.1.1, build 601.37924.100, Mac OS 11.2.2.

    The attached image is the home screen with the "residual" reminders circled in red. I call them residuals, as I correlate them to the reminders that were established in the Mac version. When the arrow on the right is selected, two options are available: skip this item and edit all instances. Neither selection has an effect.

    These scheduled reminders in "Done" status should have vanished automatically.
