Please add this option like in QM2007:


This should apply in any way transactions are entered or modified...
- manually
- scheduled transactions
- reconciliation
- acceptance of downloaded transactions (when that is implemented:
(Restore Transactions Downloading Acceptance and Matching workflow)

    merged from "Give Warning before assigning "uncategorized""

    In the older version of Quicken for Mac there was a warning/confirmation given before an uncategorized item was recorded. On Quicken 2017 they seem to sneak in and I do not always notice them. Please return that feature. Thank you,

    I'd suggest a Preference setting for this, so users who want the warning -- I'm among them! -- could have it while those who would be ignored by it could turn it off. (That said, I know the developers are reluctant to add Preferences for too many things, making the preferences themselves an area of confusion.)
