: From the installation of the version that started using trendline I have had the following problem:
: I put a trendline in the Portfolo graph. The trenline can not be deleted and has formed multiple trendline entries in the window for editing trendlines. When I try to edit or delete the trendline(s) the computer freezes as though it was processing some information.

: I tried to load my portfolio in the latest version, 5.3. The porfolio I use really acts wierd. Certain investments won't show up and the same problem with ttrendlines. I expect that the trendline glitch is worse in the new versioin.

: What do you advise? I would like to clear up the trend line problem and install the new version.

Hi Dan,
In versions prior to 5.3 any "portfolio" trendlines would get duplicated
each time you re-opened a portfolio in the same FM session. If you have many
of them, it may take a long time to delete them through the FM interface.
You can either re-create your portfolio (by just opening the investments and
re-saving the portfolio), or you can edit your portfolio file. The portfolio
file is a text file, and has the extension .mm4.

Open the .mm4 portfolio up in a text editor, such as notepad, and towards the
bottom you will see a section for portfolio trendlines:


In the above example there is 1 portfolio trendline in this portfolio. You
probably have many more. If you edit this section to look like the following
you can erase all your portfolio trendlines:
