Quicken for Windows 2018 R3.4 Build A/the recent update modified how manual billing reminders are created. Bill and Income Reminders > Add > Bill now pops up with a "Search for Online Billers that can be linked with Quicken" form. While it's nice to know I can choose or search for billers, my monthly bills are already set up and have been for ages.  When I come here it's because I'm creating a reminder for a biller that is NOT an online biller. I need to add a Manual Bill.  I am today required to click the special "Add Manual Bill" link at the bottom of this form, before I get to the "Add Bill Reminder" form that I always want to get to. I cannot find an option to return to the previous behavior which takes me directly to "Add Bill Reminder". Please provide an option on the Bill and Income Reminders page and/or Preferences to allow me to automatically bypass the Online Billers form. (I can get to Online Billers when I want to.) Thank you.

Hi Bob, excellent points. The assumption that all reminders will be online billers is just plain annoying. You should be able to create bill reminders without having to waste time with the online billers.
