I was able to successfully transition from Quicken. Love moneydance, and everything seems to just work! Good job team !!!

I have a few feature suggestions:

1. Provide ability to hide sidebar.
On laptop screens, the sidebar takes up too much space. It would be nice to look at the entire register without the sidebar.
2. Provide a way to customize colors and fonts.
I appreciate you providing a high contrast theme. Without it, the new Moneydance looked washed out and unusable. Can you provide a way to customize the fonts, so that the user can pick the fonts they want.
3. Monthly bills view.
There is a bills reminder on the summary page. It would be nice to see a monthly bills list view (not calendar) like how Quicken has, where it has the list of bills, and you can see which were paid, and which are upcoming.

Keep up the good work!!!

    1) From the menu bar select View->Hide Side Bar...

    2) This is in the works.

    3) There is an existing suggestion ticket for a reminders report but at this point I cannot make any estimate for when or if it will be implemented.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Regarding 3, I meant another item that can be added to the summary which is a list of bills for this month, not report.

    Anyways thanks.

    Regarding customizing fonts and colors:
    1st Point:
    Reminders are listed with a single font and only the background is yellow, if the General Reminder is in the future. How about extending the General Reminder capability to change/bold the font and font color? Thus separated from the Transaction Reminder, the General Reminder would function more clearly as a type of To-Do List.

    2nd Point:
    When you click either the left or right mouse button, options come up to modify the Reminder. How about having the left mouse button bring up the Memo Data for General Reminders? This way the user could store a detailed message that is easily retreived without selecting the Edit option and the software would continue to follow general practice with the Right Mouse Button.
