    I see this suggestion has been made on the Windows side but I would like to see this on the Mac version. I am using Premier.

    I would the ability to use different row colors to highlight specific kinds of transactions such that I can easily tell, yup, there are/were 3 blue, 2 yellow and 1 green rows this month.

    Add the ability to highlight individual rows in the register. Color options for fonts would be great!

    It would be great if Quicken would highlight the security when one clicks on it

    This is still an item that would be greatly appreciated by users. It would not seem that much of a challenge when excel and word (not to mention Lotus 123 and Wordperfect) all had this feature decades ago. Come on!! let's get with the times. Just allow various color highlighting of ledger lines.
    Thank you

    At the min. highlighting sb similar to a spreadsheet, highlight a cell (in a color) then have the ability to filter it. I.e. so one can enter (set up) and visually see important/key future/past events. So when one searches a column have the option to select and choose "used" colors in the pick list too.

    For example, I have a benefit/medical payment due on x date ea. month AND I must manage funding it with sufficient funding in the account, thus need to see these events for the next n (12) months.

    @Quicken Anja there is a similar entry under -> DISPLAY/UI (MAC). And I will repost my (similar) request here.

    Please add a highlighting option to Quicken. I would LOVE to be able to highlight things in my register when I am reconciling to my bank account register. Yes, there is a clear option but this does not stand out and there are times I need to highlight things to notice quickly. Please, please add this option!! Before using Quicken exclusively I used a ledger and always highlighted things that I needed to keep my eye on. Thank you!

    Use Case: Need the means to visually support any transaction that requires attention, i.e. displayed by a large colored font, displayed by a visual background color or, popup box stating "Attention Needed" associated to the transaction in question. Colum filtering also required to filter on these highlighted transactions.

    Work around, None. Current Status "Flag For Review" is in sufficient due to size, column width or visual effect.

    Standards: A requirement for visually impared and, an overall User Interace improvement

    Just another user asking for the highlight feature. For me, I'd use it to call attention to transactions I have questions about and need to follow up on. For example: a shared expense that I need to make sure I get paid back for, an adjustment amount that I need to dig into, a subscription amount that is higher (like at the end of a promotional period) that I need to call the provider about, etc. These are all temporary needs, so using something like a category, tag or note doesn't quite fit the bill.

    @Mer978 I'm in favor of this feature request, but is seems to be quite slow in attracting votes from fellow Quicken users. Unless/until the developers add some other way to highlight or flag specific transactions, you might find it useful to use the Status column, where you can set transactions to have a blue pencil (not reviewed) icon. To do this, Control-click on a transactions, and from the large pop-up menu, select Set Status of Selected Transaction to > Not Reviewed. It's not a perfect solution, but you's one way to quickly flag and unclog certain transactions. (Note this only works in accounts configured to download transactions; accounts which are entered manually do not allow transactions to be marked as not Reviewed.)

    Another alternative is to use the Action column if it's not one you typically use. You can enter whatever you want, such as REVIEW, in this field, and making the Action column visible in your register makes it relatively easy to spot the ones you need to review. (And you can even sort the register by this column, or use Search to find only the REVIEW transactions.)
