Newest 42.8 Update has messed up matching downloaded transactions

Newest update has messed up the automatic matching of transactions.
Previously, if you entered a transaction into the register that had been downloaded but in the unmatched transactions, it would automatically recognize it, accept it and move it to the upper/cleared and Matched Transactions. It no longer does that. You have to go and match it manually. This occurs in both banking and credit card accounts.

    Hi @pab1 ,

    If the update, messes up, transactions, simple restore the last manual Backup, or restore the update backup, the update created. This is what Backups are for.

    Restoring latest backup is my last resort, as I had entered several hours worth of data into Quicken before I realized the update was corrupt. Wouldn't it make more sense for Quicken to realize their mistake and fix the software issue that caused this problem?

    Even if they found that they made a mistake that corrupted your data, they wouldn't be able to "uncorrupt" your data file.  Not mention even to find and fix the problem might take a long time.

    And that even assumes that they look for and find a problem.  One person having such a problem out of thousands is most likely going to be written off as a one-time glitch.

    Hi @pab1 ,

    That is not possible. Each User doesn't do the same thing that the other User does.
    I use CCleaner Free, each day as well as Glary Utilities5. I keep a lean mean computer. Thus, I read the problems, others are having, which I don't see occurring in my operating systems and installations of Quicken.

    Next time, you install a Quicken Update, restart the computer and after you are back to the Desktop, load Quicken and go into About Quicken and see the Version of Quicken you are running.

    The file is not corrupt, the work around is to just click on the account in the list, this would move it to the to to as "matched". Once you "accept" the transaction goes back down as "accepted", usually I like to clean up the "downloaded transaction (xx)" so I just click on the account, instead of "finish later".

    You said this in another dup thread:  Please note that this is "refresh bug", it wasn't intentionally done.  Hopefully they will get it fixed soon.

    Same thing happening to me. It needs to be fixed ASAP since I generally don't enter transactions until after they're downloaded.That's a lot of unnecessary manual matching.

    Once you have edited and saved the register transaction so that it now matches the downloaded transaction, try clicking the transaction in the Downloaded Transaction tab again. It should now switch to show "Match" and allow you to accept it as usual.

    Hi @"rlbloom113

    In order to match downloaded transactions to transactions in your register, the scheduled transactions must be entered into the register, not just shown in the register. You can't match Scheduled Transactions to downloaded transactions, unless the Scheduled Transactions are entered.

    I have the same problem. I download transactions and manually enter them into the register based off what downloads. Once the transaction is manually entered into the register, the downloaded one automatically show's "Match". I then accept and clear it. This was broken when the last update was pushed. The resolution from support was to manually match, which defeats the entire purpose and is not an option for me. I’ve been using this product for over 20 years and entering all my transactions on one account this way for the past 10. I’ve been wanting to change apps for awhile now as the product has continuously gotten worse over the years. Historical data and routines are the only reasons I have not moved on. This is a big enough issue for me to look elsewhere.

    I have an issue where transactions downloaded from Citi credit card do no match transactions that were manually entered doubling the entries in the register. The transactions I manually entered are marked as cleared and the downloaded transactions are also entered and marked as cleared. I'm using R42.19 and the issue started before the update.
