remove shading from reports

I just upgraded to QBES 2019 and the General Ledger report has very annoying shading across each account heading and totals.  It makes it very difficult to scroll down through the report and skim the amounts.

Is there any way to turn that setting off or is this another feature that Intuit has forced upon all users with no choice in the matter?


Hello there, Duaned77.

I appreciate you visiting us today. I can share some insights about the General Ledger report setup in QuickBooks.

You have the options to customize the color and font style of the General Ledger report. However, the option to remove the shading across each account heading and totals isn't available yet. 

I'd like to make sure this suggestion gets to our product developers. I encourage you to send us feedback to possibly include this to our future QuickBooks updates. I'll do the same in my end.

Here's how you can send your feedback:

  1. Click the Help menu bar.
  2. Scroll down to Send Feedback Online.
  3. Select Product Suggestion.
  4. Select Product Suggestion for the Type of Feedback.
  5. Product Area is optional.
  6. Enter your suggestion.
  7. Click Send Feedback.

That's it. If you have questions concerning your QuickBooks Desktop account, you are always welcome to visit us again. Have a great day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support 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.
