I am currently using Moneydance 2020.1(1928).

The stocks at a glance is terrible to read in dark mode. The text lines background alter dark and white. The text of stock symbol and stock name column are also white. So white on white. The text of price and other columns are dark and so dark on dark. Please fix.

The same is true for the QFX importer. In dark mode, I can't read the file name to import. Please fix

The stock price downloads is very slow. There is no status on progress of download stock prices. Have you looked at the price database in GnuCash? This download works faster. It also allows you to choose multiple source for the stock price: Alphaavantage, Fool, Vanguard etc.

Why use 3rd party developers for extensions?

    Hi Reed

    If the Quote and exchange rate updater does not work well for you try the extension Quote Loader under EXTENSIONS – MANAGE EXTENSION

    For information see post 63 at

    Download the PDF attached to posts 63 and have a read.

    To get an overview take a look at the YouTube videos by using the links on page 1 and 2 of the PDF.

    Let us know how you get on or if you need help just post.

    Hope this helps.
