I've been using Quicken for over 12 years and have hundreds of renaming rules. After a recent auto-update now they no longer work. 

Here's an example:

    Hello @Jeremy Moritz

    Thank you for reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I do apologize for the issue you're having. That is quite odd that it'd stop working all of a sudden. Your settings don't show anything wrong that's creating difficulties so I'm wondering here if we might try to load a backup to see if we have a similar issue as well. When you restore a backup I would recommend creating a copy as well to see if the backup might work a bit better. Additionally the most recent backup prior to the update might work best. I'll leave steps below on how to do so.

    Once you get the chance let us know what you're able to find out. From there we'll see what we're able to do next.

    Thanks,

    Quicken Francisco

    I didn't do a restore, but signed out of my account and back in and things seem to be working again...for now.

    Hi JM. I'm having the same problem you experienced. May I ask, when you signed out of your account, was that signed out of your online Quicken account or something with your desktop app? Thanks, Brian

    I signed out on my desktop app. Here's the instructions on the other issue I was having that led to that solution. https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7891041/one-step-update-no-longer-working-for-all-accounts#latest

    Super, thanks for replying, much appreciated. Much easier and safer than the uninstall/fix-file/reinstall solution.
