March 2021 I asked about locating the quicken glossary that used to be part of the help menu. It seems that it is no longer available, I certainly cannot find it.
It should be easy to find.
Also, investment terms that are downloaded or do not change with dates should be clearly defined as opposed to terms calculated using portfolio, date dependent data. In addition, it would be helpful to show equations and sample calculations used to determine investment terms.

    It's pretty hard to find. It used to be easier.
    1. Go to your Portfolio.
    2. Click Customize.
    3. Click the (?) at the bottom left corner of the resulting dialog.
    4. In the resulting help page, scroll down to section 3.d and click the link there that begins with "performance measures". That will get you to a page which shows the sources of the various quantities.
    5. On that same help page, click the link near the top for "key investment performance calculations". That will get you to the investment terminology page.
    I was unable to get this page simply by searching for "key investment performance calculations" in help. You could start with just "investing" and see the whole tree of help pages under that.

    The Glossary that used to be in the in-product Help was very useful. It's too bad it was lost when they reorganized the Help and moved it mostly online.

    Some of the former Glossary content is now at


    The second link identifies the source of each of the data points.

    The QW2017 Help file is .chm, compiled html. Anyone have a chm converter they would recommend?
