I used to be a proseries user. I switched over to lacerte. So I am wondering if lacerte has a feature like pro series where required fields are highlighted in red, even if the return is not going to be efile.

Here's an example of what I'm referring to.Capture.PNG

No. I would suggest you at least initially select e-file. There are many RED DOTS with ! INSIDE  red.JPG that show up to highlight required for e-file. Also in the tabs, you can select Diagnostics which gives you many items to review. Either correct and they go away, or decide they are okay and you check to box to acknowledge them. 

After you are happy with review, go back to Screen 1 and remove the check marks for e-file, if you want.

Geez, Louise, you pay thousands of dollars more and you think you should get more bells and whistles?

And for the Lacerte bonus of paying thousands more than Pro Series: you now must learn that -1 equals zero!

But Erma Bombeck was right - the grass is always greener over the septic tank.
