How do I stop having shares added upon syncing account?

Just transitioned from windows to Mac subscription. When syncing investment account, quicken keeps adding shares which duplicate existing shares. I delete the added shares and the next sync just adds them back in. I saved a backup after deleting shares and then restored from backup. The syncing just added the shares again. Does not happen with other accounts.

    If you keep getting placeholder transactions added for existing shares, I would look in the Window:Securities list. I suspect you will find the mismatch there.

    It sounds like the new download treats whatever you held as a different security, and thusly keeps adding it in. You might need to merge the old and new so this doesn't keep happening.
