Is there a way to copy transactions from one account to another in Quicken for Mac?

    Yes, it's easy! Just select one or more transactions in the source account's register and drag them to the destination account in the sidebar. This moves the transaction; doesn't make a copy. If you want to make a copy of a transaction in another register, you will need to first duplicate it (menu Transactions > Duplicate Transaction) in the source register, then move the copy.

    May I ask a question?  Why do you want to copy a transaction to another account?  Or do you mean another FILE?  Why would you need the same transaction in 2 accounts?  Is it for a Transfer?  Or do you mean just to move it?  Can you give an example?

    The answer is I'm moving all my money out of Chase bank [removed - off-topic/disruptive]

    As such I have planned ahead five months in Quicken for my finances. I want to easily move these items to my local bank for future budgeting.

    the select and move worked great, I don't understand why there isn't a simple cut and paste feature for this, but hey it worked. Thank you.
