    Clicking on a column header will sort by that column.  Clicking a second time (not a double click) will reverse the order.

    In your case, click on the Date column header.

    I want to set sort by date to be common to all my accounts UNLESS I pick a different way to sort.
    having to resort every time I switch to another account, makes me waste time every time I use quicken.  This is fairly new "FEATURE (i.e. bug)" to quicken since I have been using it since the mid 90's.

    Trying to make sure that I understand your message.

    If you click on, say, the Payee column header in any account, and then switch to another account and switch back to that 1st account ... then the sort order in the 1st account has changed.  Or, same scenario, if you click on the Date column header in the 1st account ...?

    Not sure, about 2 or three years ago, it started randomly switching sort.  It might be that I accidentally hit another column.  But for maybe 15 years I didn't have this problem.  Mainly I start to look for an entry and after scrolling 2 or three pages up I realize that the sort is in something other than date.  Might be that the default when I open it is last sort used.  I almost never sort by anything other than date on purpose.  I will use search instead.

    Fred, what version do you have and Windows or Mac? There is a click through bug in Q2017 for Windows.
  • edited June 2017
    Running Windows 10,  Quicken version R6 build 26.1.6.1 
    Oh, cool, there is a bug that was created with the new SW that I bought that had no real improvements.  I think the programmers are now being paid to add problems.  
    The new menu that was introduced a few years back is also a pain in many small irritating ways.
    Oh well, If I find a replacement I will probably stop using Quicken, but of course the pain of moving to new SW is a large hurdle.  But paying to find new bugs makes it more appealing.

    Has anyone found a solution that allows one to sort by date the register and make it stick?  I have 
    Win 10 and latest Quicken 2017 release (R15.13)...and yes, I have date dotted in the Preferences setting.  It just doesn't seem to hold.

    Jane,

    Looks like you have
    "the click-through bug" on your system. Clicking a menu item
    "clicks through" to the underlying view or account register and
    changes something there, depending on where the mouse is at "click"
    time.

    This appears to be a
    problem with only some systems on some Windows versions.

    For Quicken versions prior to Q 2018 Release R 4 (US) ...

    • Every time you start Quicken
      click Help in
      the Menu Bar then click Enable Accessibility and the Menu Bar access problem will go away
      for the duration of this session.

    Keyboard shortcut
    for the above: press Alt-H, then press A

    P.S.: To make it
    easier to recognize available keyboard shortcuts in menus, set a Windows option
    to underline shortcut and access keys: In Windows Control Panel / Ease of
    Access Center select "Make the keyboard easier to use", put a
    checkmark in "Underline shortcut and access keys". Click Apply, then
    OK.
