    This works flawlessly for me. Are you certain you have the selection ticked in your settings?

    According to Quicken's help, that feature only applies when using the pop-up calculator.

    Enters the decimal point two places to the left when you're using Quicken's pop-up calculator in a cash flow register.

    Example: You enter 3478 on the pop-up calculator; Quicken records the amount as 34.78.

    I don't know that it has always been that limited or if it a recent change or if it fully accurate.

    I don't use pop up calculator to enable this feature. All my transactions to all registers are entered using this feature.
