Close Books

I'm struggling with the fact that Quicken is not a double entry bookkeeping setup. It seems to cause all kinds of issues related to inadvertant transaction duplication/modification. It's super frustrating, because these issues will show up randomly and take hours to troubleshoot. Double entry completely solves these issues.

Having the ability to "close the books" for previous years would help lock all of that down without having to start a new file from scratch and lose the ability to look at all of your financial history combined.

I'm borderline thinking about switching to a different tool that support double entry for this simple fact. But Quicken is by far the best and most integrated personal finance tool. I'm very torn about this issue.
