Why sign on in Q Classic -- and why so difficult?
I've seen fixes to avoid repeated sign ons to the Quicken online account from within Quicken Classic (Windows), but have never seen an explanation of why sign on is needed. I work entirely offline except for downloads of transactions/quotes. So why do I need a Quicken account, other than to pay for the app? And, in particular, why do I need to sign on to it to use a desktop app, meaning Quicken for Windows.
And while we're at it, if Quicken is going to make me sign on for reasons unknown, why couldn't it at least interface with my password manager? And, if I try to access the Quicken community through Help option in the app, why can I not paste my password into the password field? (Try it — it doesn't work.)
