I am still waiting for single-line transaction register views in iBank 4. For a lot of people it is not an issue but for an equal amount of other users it is important. Please make it a user selectable choice. I requested it as an iBank 4 beta tester, others have requested it your forums, it was an option in iBank 3 and you provide multiple views in iBank 4 so it is possible. Please do this. Thank you.

This is for the people having trouble starting sync services because the Sync Service dialog box is grayed out or empty.
I had the same problem and this is what I did to get it working.
1. First setup a new 'user administrator account' in the Accounts System Preferences. This can be deleted later after you use it.
2. Now log out of your current user account and log into the one you just made.
3. Start Outlook and go to the Preferences > Sync Services. If the sync services panels are not grayed out or empty, that will tell you that something in your personal user account is interfering with Outlook's ability to start sync services. This is good news because now all you need to do is figure out what it is without waiting for Microsoft to fix it.
4. Now log out of this account and log back into your personal account. Of course try the following at your own risk but if you are careful you should be okay.
5. Basically I deleted any file in my Home Library folder that had sync in its name that could be related to sync services. I deleted the files but not the folders they were in. I did not delete things like Dropbox or SugarSync because I did not believe they were related to sync services. These file will be made again the next time you use sync services but hopefully without the problem causing Outlook not to start syncing. Again, please be careful on what you are deleting.
6. Now restart your computer, login to your personal account, start Outlook, go to Preferences > Sync Services and see if all is well. This worked for me and I pray it will work for you. Good Luck.
P.S. Now you can delete the administrator account you created earlier. That can be done from within Accounts System Preferences.

This is a reply to megaman.
My posting was for anybody who really wanted something to try to get their copy of Outlook sync services turned on. It worked for me because there was something in my Home folder stopping it and I was simply passing on the information.
Some people bitch and others do something.
If your are happy on your soapbox, I am truly happy for you as I will be happy for anyone who may be helped with my suggestions. But I do agree with you on the point that people love Macs because they simply work.

A quick note:
Budget reports in early versions of QEM did not report on income categories, only expenses. That was fixed in v1.5. Now with Quicken Essentials 1.5.1f5975 it seems to be broken again.
What I am referring to is that if you create a budget with a income category in it, it does not show any transactions filling the income category in the budget bar chart.

I want to say that I am very impressed with the amount of developer responses that I have seen in these comments. I have experience either total silence or a failure to understand that there is a problem that needs their attention from many a developer when I approached them with a problem. Here I see this developer at least is trying. I do not currently use Money, but I am going to try their application again simply because they still seem to care. And that matters.

Straight to the point. FruitMenu is a product that does everything I need it to do but for one thing and this one thing is the only reason I still use MaxMenu.
This is about the “Running Applications” menu item. It only shows running applications in a submenu and not as a list at the bottom of the top level menu.
MaxMenu allows me to choose between a submenu or top level list.
To the developers, please see if the “Running Applications” menu item can be made into a choice like you have with any other folder's contents.
It makes the application selection process quicker for me.
Blank spaces as menu separators are okay but Labels are something that I would like to see be added also.

I personally love Intaglio. My Mac was almost completely OSX except for an easy to use, intuitive drawing program to replace my Classic ClarisDraw and MacDraft. I don?t need the powerhouses that cost $$$ and I tried the others like iDraw etc. and while they were good they just didn't feel right to me. Intaglio is still young and features still need to be added but if the developer waited until it was 100% complete we would never have the chance to use this nice drawing program. No program is prefect and complete at introduction, that's why we have ever increasing version numbers.
Bottom-line ? It is a very good drawing program that is easy to adapt to, sporting a great interface, has a very good help file, contains many of the features I was use to using and the developer is very open to feedback on how to improve Intaglio. Try it, play around with it. If you feel it is missing something, drop the developer a note. You might see it in v1.2.2 (currently v1.2.1).

In Quicken Essentials for the Mac (QEM), the account register view has a status column that contains blue dots and circles stating the status of the transaction. In versions before 1.6, recently downloaded transactions showed the status as blue dots that had a gradient appearance to it that allowed me to see the transactions that were just downloaded as compared to the flat blue dots for older transactions. With version 1.6.0f6607, the gradient blue dots no longer appear for the recently downloaded transactions. They appear as the standard flat blue dots.
Please bring back the gradient blue dots in the status column of the register view for recently downloaded transactions so users can see what transactions were just downloaded.

I have just updated to version 2011 14.1 (SP1).

Question: Do I need MobileMe from the iCal and Mail Task syncing to work?

I currently do not have it and when I open the Sync Services preferences in Outlook 2011, all I get is the dialog box without two empty selection boxes.
