Alerts and notices

Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

Is there an easy way to search for a specific option within a very long drop-down list?

Place the cursor within the list field and then press CTRL+L to open a dialog where you can type a character string to search on, then press ENTER or click the Search button. The application will find the first match within the drop-down list.

To resume searching for the next instance of the character string, press CTRL+R.
