Find dollar range feature for transactions

I am trying to find transactions with a dollar amount between $2000 and $4000. How can I do this as the Find dialog does not have that capability? Please add this feature.

    If you haven't already, you may want to consider sorting the transactions in the register or report by the amount column.

    I am asking for a feature. Just like my bank has that allows me to search ranges for a number of dates, dollar amounts, check numbers, etc. I was on the phone with my bank and I couldn't search for a range and it was senseless to me that the feature isn't already there as it seems like a basic function.

    Sorting the register by amount column (left-click on the column title) would have enabled you to easily locate all of the transactions in the range.

    @Paddy Are you looking for $2k to $4k transactions anywhere in Q?  Or in a specific account.@Sherlock's method already exists if you're only looking in a single account.

    And if you ARE looking "anywhere in Q", click the "All Transactions" header of your "Account Bar" and perform  the same search.
    For either method to work, you'll need to make visible the "Amount" column, which you can do by clicking the Gear icon above your right slider bar, click "Register Columns" and check "Amount".
    I'd suggest turning this column off when you've completed your search, as it's too confusing  to get the sign of the transaction correct on data entry. Use the "Charge/Payment" or "Payment/Deposit "columns for your data entry.

    We may even sort the results of a Find in the Search Results window by amount using a left click on the column title.

    I appreciate the work around and it still would be convenient to have a find feature like the one I suggested, or do you think it's redundant and will never happen?

    We do understand what you're asking for but wanted to know you understood how to accomplish the task today.  There have been many requests to improve the search functionality over the years but perhaps Quicken management will deem the convenience of being able to specify a min/max amount range filter worth implementing some day.
