Thank you to the development team for R41.9 features

I see a few long-requested features have been provided in R41.9 and the fixing of investment account sorting (as an option).

Sometimes when the users are all dealing with problems it is hard to acknowledge that you are listening and trying to give features that the people want, and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the work you have done.

    So great...I was offered the new release today when I first opened Quicken and decided to download later. Well now it keeps telling me I have the latest 40.21 and there is nowhere to get the 41.9 release. Can't even go to mondo patch to get it. This seems to happen every time a new release is offered.

    That is the nature of the beast.  If you don't update when asked, then you might miss the cutoff for the number of users they download to automatically.  You will have to wait for the Mondo patch to be posted or wait even longer for it to be released to everyone.

    When will the Mondo patch be posted?
    Usually, it is posted within a day, but not always.

    How does one accept the reordered account list? The only exit I see is the corner X, which cancels.

    There is a Save button at the bottom of the Rearrange accounts panel.

    I don't see any buttons at the bottom.

    @Rocket J Squirrel I had a feeling that was going to be the problem.  It is a window scaling problem.  They have drawn the "panel" too big and as such the bottom of the panel with the buttons aren't showing on your screen (they are below or hidden by the taskbar).

    Try it with Quicken in window mode.

    What is window mode?
    Also, the panel lacks a scroll bar and does not respond to my mouse scroll wheel.

    P.S. I also see that they aren't scaling that panel if one is in "Large Fonts" mode.

    I meant take Quicken out of maximize mode (provided you are in maximized mode in the first place).

    Aha, making the main Quicken window very short (like half its usual height) shows the rest of the rearrange list, including scroll bar and buttons.

    @Rocket J Squirrel , Which program are you using to pixelate your screenshot?  I like it.

    @Rocket J Squirrel Are you using multiple displays?
    And if you are, are they at different resolutions?

    They are still sizing things in Quicken based on the main display!

    I use Greenshot.  It has obfuscation, highlighting and text.  Great tool.

    No, I just have 1 10-year-old display at [email protected]%.
    Oddly, R41.9 does not seem to change size anywhere if I reduce scaling to 100%. The register looks the same and the account rearranger still falls of the bottom.

    Yup, Greenshot. Really good screen capture & markup.

    I would like to better understand the benefit of the new Rearrange feature in R41.9:
    • I can move a specific account up or down.  Which I could do before from Tools > Account List.
    • Now I can also move the entire Account type, i.e. move Investing above Banking.
    So the second bullet is new as well as the overall UI approach which couldn't be that trivial.  I am curious to know the use case scenarios that gave this such priority to implement.  I feel like I am missing out.

    @BK the benefit is that it is much easier and quicker to move accounts around.  The up and down arrows are slow.  And no, it doesn't change the order of account groups or what can be in any given group.

    I'm still having issues with the Save button. Tried resizing the screen, not in Large fonts, etc. The Rearrange box is in the lower left corner of the screen and it will not let me move it and can't get to the Save button.
