Please suggest good personal accounting software for Mac

I bought Quicken for Mac 2016, but honestly, it really sucks.

I was really excited at first when it was released, but alas, the software seems very hokey.
It constantly crashes and I cannot mix CAD$ accounts with USD$ account. (i.e. if I try to transfer between accounts, there is nothing to let me calculate the exchange rate. Also, when I download data from the bank it almost NEVER is able to match up with the data that is already in Quickbooks. Creates duplicate entries and I have to manually match everything, and even at that sometimes it won't let me match the entry and I have to just delete one. Causes WAAAAAY more work that it's worth. It would be easier to simply use an Excel spreadsheet

What do you guys suggest for Mac?  Hopefully something that can load the Quicken file that I've already set up now, but if not, that's OK. As long as it's a good program. Also, I need it to be able to print cheques on the Letter-sized paper (3 cheques per page). I don't need it for business (i.e. don't need payroll, tax, accounts payable, accounts receivable - don't need any of that). Just something simple and sweet to keep tracking of my personal bank accounts and print cheques. I don't care what it costs.

There's a great program I've used called Moneyworks Gold.  The Express version is also good but you need Gold for multi-currency
