Why does Budget Report display categories/subcategories inconsistently?

I recently created a new expense category and made several existing expense categories subcategories of the new category. My budget report displays all of my subcategories indented under their "major" category with subtotals for each major category EXCEPT the newly created one where there is no subtotal and the subcats are displayed with the name of the major followed by a colon and the name of the sub (ex: "Gifts: Gifts to Grandchildren"). Is this a glitch with a new release? Category selection is identical to all of the others.

    In Budgets / Manage Budget Categories you have selected the subcategories. But have you also selected the parent category, "Gifts"? That makes a difference in how the categories are displayed.

    Yes. As I said, Category selection is identical to the others which display correctly.

    So, when I ran the report this morning it "magically" appeared as expected. I made no changes and as far as I know there was no update overnight. Makes you wonder...

    Anyway, thanks for reporting back that all is well now.
