SEE Finance 2 for macOS FAQs


SEE Finance 2 for macOS is compatible with macOS 10.12 Sierra and later.

Yes! Visit our Downloads Page to download a copy of SEE Finance and you can try it for 30 days.

None really. The only difference is that if you haven’t purchase and registered SEE Finance then you’re prompted to register and only have 30 days to try out the program.

There are a few minor differences:

The version available from us directly will require registration and you’ll receive license info following your purchase. The versions available in the Mac App Store will register itself.

Updates are generally available from us directly before they’re available on the Mac App Store due to the Mac App Store’s review process.

Updating the version available from us directly requires you download the new update and then move it from your Downloads folder to your Applications folder while accepting to replace the older version. The version available on the Mac App Store will update itself.

Customers that purchased version 1.X of SEE Finance from us directly can receive a discount when purchasing version 2.X by entering their registration info on the Upgrade to Version 2 Page. Unfortunately, the Mac App Store doesn’t allow developers to offer previous customers discounted upgrades.

Only customers that purchased from us directly will receive registration information as the Mac App Store version registers itself. You should receive a “SEE Finance Registration Info” email from seefinancesupport @ scimonocesoftware.com following your purchase. However, all you really need to register the program is the first name, last name and email address used during your purchase.

Only the version available from us requires registration and not the Mac App Store version. If you need to register the program you will be prompted to do so when opening the program. You can view and edit your registration information from the program’s main “SEE Finance” menu.

We do not ship any physical products. You will only receive a “SEE Finance Registration Info” email from seefinancesupport @ scimonocesoftware.com following your purchase with your license information for the program. Sometimes it can take a little while for us to be notified of the purchase before this email is generated, but please contact us at SEE Finance Email Support if you have not received your license information more than an hour following purchase.

That’s a good question and one of the best things about SEE Finance. Your SEE Finance data is stored where ever you choose. The program is document based, just like text and spreadsheet programs, where the program is completely separate from the data file(s) you create and edit in the program. We recommend that you store your file(s) for the program either on iCloud Drive, if you wish to sync them to other devices, or in your Documents folder.

With the program being document based, the question of security ultimately rests with where you choose to store your file. It has not been easy to develop the program to provide users with both the option to store their data where they want as well as making it possible to sync their data with other devices through a secure and reliable means that is also completely under their control. Most similar programs force you to give up control over the location of your data if you want to sync with other devices, but not SEE Finance. You can store your file(s) securely on your local drive or store them securely on iCloud Drive. Files stored on iCloud Drive are fully encrypted and you have complete control over them.

The program also makes use of your Apple Keychain to securely store items such as credentials for account download connections (user name, account number and password) as well as storing account numbers if you enter them into the program. Your Apple Keychain is widely considered the most secure location to keep this kind of information.

That’s simple, just choose to store your file on iCloud Drive. If you have SEE Finance 2 for iOS or purchased SEE Finance 2 for macOS from the Mac App Store, a folder named “SEE Finance” in your iCloud Drive folder should be created automatically. For SEE Finance 2 for iOS, when iCloud is enabled the default location for viewing and opening files is this “SEE Finance” folder in your iCloud Drive folder making it the ideal location to store your file(s) for the program. In SEE Finance 2 for iOS, you can also select the “Locations” option to open a file for the program stored in a different location.

First, make sure your file is stored on iCloud Drive. On macOS, open your file in the program and select "Sync Settings..." from the File menu and make sure it tells you that your file is stored in iCloud. On an iOS device, open your file in the program and tap the action button under the list of accounts. Then tap "Document Info" from the popup menu option. Make sure the "Location" shows "iCloud".

If the file doesn't indicate it is stored on iCloud, on macOS you can move the file to iCloud using the program's File menu's "Move" option or you can use Finder to move the file. On iOS you can enable iCloud for the program in the Settings app and when you return to the program the files will begin uploading to iCloud (refer to iOS FAQ).

If you have confirmed your file is stored on iCloud and new changes don't appear to be syncing across devices you will need to pick which of your devices has the copy of your file that you want to keep.

If it is a macOS computer that has the desired file to keep, first close the file or program on your other macOS and iOS devices if possible. Then you can open the file in the program and then go to the program's File menu. Hold down the Option key and then you can select the "Replace in iCloud" option" which essentially resets the copy of the file on iCloud with the contents of this file. Allow some time for iCloud to update the file on your other devices and you should be back up and running.

If it is an iOS device that has the desired file to keep, first close the file or program on your other macOS and iOS devices if possible. Then you can open the file on your iOS device and tap the action button under the list of accounts. Then tap "Document Info" from the popup menu option. Towards the bottom is an "iCloud Options" section, if the file is stored on iCloud, and you can select the "Replace in iCloud" option" which essentially resets the copy of the file on iCloud with the contents of this file. Allow some time for iCloud to update the file on your other devices and you should be back up and running.

Don’t worry. You probably just need to select to open your file. The program is document based, just like text and spreadsheet programs, where the program is completely separate from the data file(s) you create and edit in the program. If you have previously created a file in the program then you can use the program’s File menu’s “Open” option to navigate to and open your file. If you haven’t created a file yet then you can use the program’s File menu’s “New File” option to create a new file.

*Note that your data file(s) for the program are stored in the location that you choose.  You can open a Finder window and type ".scsf”, without the quotes, in the search field on the top right and select "This Mac" for the search options and Finder will locate all of the SEE Finance files saved on your computer.

When you open the program it should load the last used file automatically. However, you can always use the program’s File menu’s “Open” option to navigate to and open your file.

*Note that your data file(s) for the program are stored in the location that you choose.  You can open a Finder window and type ".scsf”, without the quotes, in the search field on the top right and select "This Mac" for the search options and Finder will locate all of the SEE Finance files saved on your computer.

Yes. All you need to do is select to open your file from the previous version of the program in SEE Finance 2 for macOS and follow the prompts to convert the file. However, due to being a completely new program not everything will transfer from older versions. You can learn more and find the updating instructions on the links below:

Updating to Version 2 Page for Direct Purchases

Updating to Version 2 Page for Mac App Store Purchases

Yes. You should be able to export your data from your current personal finance program to a QIF file and then use that file to setup a new file in SEE Finance. There’s more information on the Switching to SEE Finance Page.

If your institutions provides you with OFX Direct Connect downloads then yes. Most U.S. based institutions offer their customers OFX Direct Connect downloads. If yours doesn’t you should ask them why and request that they do so. Any other downloading method almost always requires you having to give away your personal financial data for the price of convenience. You can learn more about OFX Direct Connect downloads on our Downloading FAQs Page.

If your institution does not provide you with OFX Direct Connect downloads, it is more than likely they make files available for download on their website which you can easily import into the program.

You can visit our Downloading FAQs Page.

Yes. You can import accounts from QFX, OFX, QIF and QMTF files. You can import transactions into existing accounts from QFX, OFX, QIF, QMTF and CSV files.

When transferring from another program it is best to transfer your data using a QIF file.

When needing to download a file from an institution’s website for import into the program, it is best to look for QFX or OFX files. If those file types are not available then check for QIF file downloads and lastly CSV files. Note that QFX files are sometimes listed as the "Quicken® Web Connect" option, OFX files are sometimes listed as the "Microsoft® Money" option, and QIF files are sometimes listed as the "Microsoft® Money 2002 or Earlier" or the "Quicken® 2002 or Earlier" option.

SEE Finance is currently only available in English.

SEE Finance 2 for iOS FAQs


SEE Finance 2 for iOS is compatible with iOS 11.0 and later.

Not currently.

That’s a good question and one of the best things about SEE Finance. Your SEE Finance data is stored where ever you choose. The program is document based, just like text and spreadsheet programs, where the program is completely separate from the data file(s) you create and edit in the program. We recommend that you enable iCloud for SEE Finance so that you can store your file(s) for the program on iCloud Drive, if you wish to sync them to other devices. If you don’t choose to use iCloud then deleting the app will delete your files.

With the program being document based, the question of security ultimately rests with where you choose to store your file. It has not been easy to develop the program to provide users with both the option to store their data where they want as well as making it possible to sync their data with other devices through a secure and reliable means that is also completely under their control. Most similar programs force you to give up control over the location of your data if you want to sync with other devices, but not SEE Finance. You can store your file(s) securely on your device without using iCloud or store them securely on iCloud Drive. Files stored on iCloud Drive are fully encrypted and you have complete control over them.

The program also makes use of your Apple Keychain to securely store items such as credentials for account download connections (user name, account number and password) as well as storing account numbers if you enter them into the program. Your Apple Keychain is widely considered the most secure location to keep this kind of information.

That’s simple, just choose to store your file on iCloud Drive. If you turned iCloud on during setup then any files you create in the iOS version will be stored in a folder named “SEE Finance” in your iCloud Drive folder. If you didn’t enable iCloud during setup, you can learn how in the FAQ below. You can also select the “Locations” option to open a file for the program stored in a different location such as being stored elsewhere on iCloud Drive by the macOS version of the program.

First, make sure your file is stored on iCloud Drive. On an iOS device, open your file in the program and tap the action button under the list of accounts. Then tap "Document Info" from the popup menu option. Make sure the "Location" shows "iCloud". On macOS, open your file in the program and select "Sync Settings..." from the File menu and make sure it tells you that your file is stored in iCloud.

If no files are shown select the “Locations” option which will allow you to open a file not stored in the program’s documents such as being stored elsewhere on iCloud Drive.

Open the Settings app and scroll down to the SEE Finance preferences towards the bottom. Then turn the “Use iCloud” option on. When you go back to SEE Finance you’re files will automatically be uploaded to iCloud Drive in a folder named “SEE Finance”.

Not currently. You will need to convert the older files using SEE Finance 2 for macOS.

When you open the program it should load the last used file automatically. If not, then you should be shown all the files you have created in the program that are stored within the program’s documents.
