Each time I start QB 2019 I need to set Reporting preferences to Cash. As soon as I exit the program the preference reverts to Accrual. This happens also when I close one company and open another. In addition, the formatting preferences I make are not remembered from report to report even when I check the box saying they should apply to all reports. These issues are unexpected and new for me with this new version.
Hi there, @drkmkilgore.
Thanks for reaching out to us about the report preferences for QuickBooks Mac 2019.
Most likely your QuickBooks is set to Accrual and reverts when you exit the program or open another company. Let's work together to change the report's default reference to Cash.
That should set the report's accounting basis to cash, @drkmkilgore.
I'm still here to help you more if you have additional questions about reports. Just leave a comment below by clicking the "Reply" button. Have a wonderful day ahead!
I have done your recommended solution multiple times. I am annoyed with having to do it each time I open the program. Other preferences seem to stick. This specific one does not.
Thanks for getting back to me and providing the results, drkmkilgore.

But before that, make sure to comply with the system requirements for QuickBooks Mac to avoid system interruption and issues while using the product.
If errors are found, you'll need to proceed to rebuilding the data:
Please give this a try, @drkmkilgore.
