    I don't follow what you are talking about, you can already collapse the category groups, and the parent categories.  And you can't really collapse a category, there isn't anything under it.

    Are you talking about something like Collapse All, Expand All?

    Yes a Collapse All or Expand All...When I select the planning tab and then select budgets, and the annual view is displayed, all categories are in the expanded view with all sub-categories displayed. I have to manually collapse each category to "roll up" the subcategories.  When I return to the budget at  a later date the categories are expanded and I have to repeat the steps to collapse each category. It should either remain as I left it when I reopen my budget or have a single toggle, as featured in other reports and displays, that will collapse all categories with a single selection.

    I agree.  It is a PITB to have to collapse all the budget categories every time you open the Planning tab.  I would rather have them all collapsed the first time I go in and them manually expand the one I want to look at.

    I have the same problem. In my opinion the collapsed view should be the default view and then you expand as you need. Is there any way to submit a suggestion like this to Quicken to try to get this changed for a future release?

    Still a PITB.  Seems like this would be a simple upgrade.  I can only imagine this is aggravating to a large number of users.  I think the default should be collapsed and then you can expand the categories you want to explore.

    YES, I ditto this  completely! I just spent 45 minutes looking for SOME where  in Preferences or budget options to try and have categories  default to collapsed view (or, however I left them last) in Planning.  Quicken, can you please fix this? For all the pointless little option toggles which are available that I will NEVER use,  this is a simple (useful) one that obviously was overlooked.

    Not a perfect solution, but the budget reports have collapse/expand all as a feature. I think the intention is to use budget reports to analyze and review your budgets. The planning tab is for creating, setting and managing them.

    When I'm actively working on my budget, I also feel it is absolutely needed to collapse/expand all in a single click. It does seem obvious this should be included.

    I agree with all above posters. We need an "expand all", "collapse all" function on the planning tab.
