Command "Find" in Investment Account Transactions List

Why does the result of the Find command within list of transactions in an account come with finding of identical specified transaction/amount within many other accounts, including non-investment accounts?

Also, how to remove in the resulting chart columns that aren't needed?

It seems like the command's functionality needs a lot of improvement. It doesn't serve the purpose of improving productivity/usability for the users.

    I suspect you selected Find All instead of Find on the Quicken Find window.

    We can not remove the columns in the Search Results window.

    Yes, I was referring to the option "Find All". I was expecting that by selecting "all" I would see all transactions of my interest only in that account, not in any other. Isn't the actual result produced by the program counterintuitive?

    Whether the behavior is counterintuitive or not is subjective.  It is behaving as documented: https://help.quicken.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=3216329

    Thank you for the detailed link. It confirms my point that the feature needs improvement, i.e., allowing to search for a transaction within a certain account(s) only, rather than across all the accounts. As well, a field for the dates' differentiation would help.

    Not sure if you are in the position of communicating the above to the development team. How can I do it, if you can't?

    Thank you.
