Re: FEATURE REQUEST: Move Up/Down on Manage Scenarios Page

Thanks for this feedback.

I can't make any promises but it doesn't sound like too tough of a change. I'll put it on the list of requested changes and may get to it, especially if I have to dig into that code again.

Re: FRP Tool Corrupted File

I'm not sure if this could be the problem, but for Catalina, you can enable file system access for Java by going to General Settings -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy From there, add add permission for the program "Java" to access to the folder where you store your frp files. I have heard from other ...

I did some quick googling and I did find some users reporting problems with files/folder not appearing in finder on Catalina, but it's tough to say if it's related: https://discussi...

Re: Secure Act

Thanks for posting about this. I couldn't reproduce the problem on my end despite trying on 6 different windows machines, but you got me digging a little and I might have found the problem.

Re: Simulation start date

Does the simulator model based on actual date or default to Jan 1 start for the year? I update my account balances regularly and resimulate. Would like to know if I update and run in June for instance, the result is modeling based on the 6 months remaining vs. 12 for the year I'm in. The simulation...

Re: Is it possible to export the Additional Inputs to a table?

Right-click anywhere on either table to bring up the export menu.
