More fun with "Hidden" accounts in QD2013: Why isn't option to Show or Unshow Hidden Accounts Available?

Apparently since converting from QD2010 to QD2013 I haven't run a "fresh" balance sheet during that time.  ("Reports" > "Net Worth & Balances" > "Account Balances " or "Net Worth".) 

Today I did so and the first thing I noticed was that 119 "hidden" accounts were showing up with zero balances.  Well, I know how to fix that (or at least I did back in QD2010) so I Clicked on "Customize" > "Accounts" in order to uncheck "Show hidden accounts", but that check box isn't there.  In order to fix this I looks like I have to click on "Tools" > "Account List" > "Show hidden accounts" and then "Edit" 119 accounts, click on "Display Options" and tick the box next to "Keep this account separate- account will be excluded from Quicken reports and features".  That seems like an awful lot of what should be unnecessary work.  Are there any other options?

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
