MS has an online Microsoft Money Plus User Guide at
http://www.microsoft.com/money/suppo...u_toc_p001.htm

Unfortunately, this brings up an online document that does not provide a
means of doing a search. I wanted to search the document for preferred
payees but could not find a way to do it.

Does a pdf version of the manual exists somewhere?

If not, does an index of the document exist (it does have a TOC on the
first page)?

I have used Help out of Money, but was hoping for more information from the
User Guide.

Thanks,

Mike

in short the Online user guise was not designed to search for keywords and
there is no PDF version of the document available, however the request has
been made for quite some time. The help menu within the software was
improved quite substantially since the release of Money 2007. I suggest
referring to the help menu or directly searching through the knowledge base
via
http://support.microsoft.com/search/...9&mode=a&adv=1

Hope this helps.

I had done both before requesting help here. I do appreciate the
suggestion. Me thinks the developers might need to attend a couple of human
interface and cognitive style classes. I find M8 much less friendly and
efficient than my old M4.

Oh well, ...

Mike

Due to a major change in the GUI starting with Money 2005 it basically comes
down to customers simply getting used to change. It's almost like comparing
previous versions of Office to Office 2007, basically it's just a bunch of
eye candy with the same sort of options however they are all placed in a
different location so end users will need to learn where they are in order to
get the hang of it better. The end result is practice makes perfect
situation or at least manageable. To be quite honest many changes have been
made to Money Plus since Money 2004. Implementaion of 3rd party account
aggregation, OFX based Billpay service (brought back) better budgeting,
updates to portfolio management, and advanced file repair processes just to
name a few. So change is in fact a better thing in most cases.

Just my 2 cents worth... lol

Take care,
