Would like to make a suggestion to James Larus, and there is no contact information available that I've found on the extensions page.

Like only show owned stocks per the other download module. I see no options to edit anything in this extension. Currently it shows many previously owned stocks and expired options.

It also has an issue in my display... a bit corrupted unless I click in and run up or down the list which refreshes it I assume and is readable.

The attached image/file shows both. Some of the leftover from initial import and the messed up display.

    Well, he's a noted computer scientist, so he's not hard to find (here for example). I'm in somewhat regular contact with him, as we're co-developers of the investment reports extension, I'll forward him this post.

    I'm not that hard to find, just google and you'll find an email address (or two).

    This extension shows all of the securities (currencies of type security) that have the "Show on summary page" flag set (which is the default). This seems to be the convention of the other summary page controls. You should change this flag on previously owned stocks and expired options.

    I guess I am not seeing where you're talking about. The only spot I have
    found to do that I have. Under the Quotes and Exchange Rate Settings. If
    there is another spot. I'd love to know. I did not find it in the
    securities section for Money Dance.

    I do really like the extension, how about the other issue where is doesn't
    display correctly? (unless I click on it and run down the list.)

    I think I just found it... it is buried a bit....

    Thank you

    I am not support staff, just a user.

    To determine if a security is listed on the summary page use the tick box “Show on summary page” under TOOLS – SECURITIES – double click on the subject security – EDIT.
    Note a list of securities is only displayed if “Stock prices” is present in the bottom windows under FILE (MONEYDANCE on Mac) - PREFERENCES – SUMMARY PAGE.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, that's the way I do it as well (through the Security Tool). It is logical, even if it requires a few more clicks that seems optimal.

    Just the display issue remains. After finding the multi layer deep show box for a security. It really could be on the next higher level.
