How to add additional principal only loan payments to adjust monthly payment schedule?

mathewsmg Member
Using Quicken for Mac (subscription) on Mac OS X Catalina.

Spent three hours with Quicken Technical Support to find a way to enter an additional principal only loan payment and have Quicken adjust the monthly payment schedule accordingly -- even reached a senior supervisor yet no one had a solution to this issue.

it would seem logical & practical that Quicken would be able to handle such a situation but alas. We ended the conversation with the issue being referred to the software engineers and developers.

Can anyone shed light on this issue? I remain a Quicken fan -- just frustrated by this deficiency.

BTW, apparently the Windows version provides a menu guided process for this precise situation. :(

    I am with you. Totally surprised that this is not available. For years they promise parity but this is just another example of how they have failed in that effort.

    As a Quicken for Windows user, I'm surprised, too. I always thought this was simple to do, using the Loan setup wizard - created Scheduled Reminder. For example:
    How do the equivalent screens look in Q Mac?
