Remove Limit on Memorized Payee List with the same name

I use the Memorized Payee name: "Withdrawal From Goal" a lot and each one has different details in category and memo and tags  I currently have 8 with the same name as above and can add more using the New Payee button.  It will persist for a while and then somewhere in the future, the number gets reduced back to 8 or less with Quicken randomly deleting some within the group of Memorized Payees named: "Withdrawal From Goal".

    Quicken has the option to delete Memorized Payees after a period of un-use, could that be what is reducing your MPs?

    And if it isn't the age of the entry(*), might it be better to use distinct (slighly different) Payee Names for each of these transactions?

    To UKR SuperUser, I can't change the Payee's name because "Withdrawal from Goal" as payee only works with that payee name.  I have changed the memo so all are different.

    The solution was to add {xxx} at the end of Withdrawal From Goal{xxx}.  {The {xxx} give me the distinctions that I needed. They work and don't cause the 9 limit to be exceeded
