I know. But you should read the outrage and the number of users who are
demanding refunds. Not just the documentation but the entire release is
causing it.

Several posts lament the fact that they can't find ANY information other
than through the forums.

What is truly disconcerting is that an entire menu function with
sub-menu doesn't actually function... at all. And it, of course isn't
documented. So people who want to use "Find" don't know how to do it
under the new version.

Consider that the previous version of Quicken had a user manual that was
450+ pages, you can understand the level of squawking.
