QMac feature request: When prompted to "create" a hidden payee, unhide the payee

When entering a manual transaction and I type in the name of a hidden Payee, I am given the option to Create the Payee.  When I select the Create "payee" option, I think the hidden Payee should be changed to an unhidden Payee.  Or the options should read "Unhide payee" instead of Create payee.  

Otherwise I am led to believe I have created a payee, but next time I enter the same name, I am prompted to create it again.  This means every time I choose "Create payee", I have to check the Payee list to see if there is an existing one that is hidden.

    I'm not following. I accidentally hid a payee, how do I "unhide" it?

    @Tiffiny. Open Windows > Payees & Rules. In this screen, if you do not see a column called "Hidden" -- yes, the "Hidden" column is hidden by default! -- Control-click on any of the column headings. You'll see a pop-up menu for the available columns in this window; select Hidden so it becomes visible. Also, just above the column headings, make sure the "Show Hidden" box is checked.

    Now, you can search for any Payee, hidden or not; if it's hidden, it will have a check in the Hidden column. Just uncheck it to unhide it.
