Thank you for
reaching out on the community and telling us about your issue. I was taking a look to see if I was able to do what you were trying. If I understand correctly you were trying to make a 2019 budget to carry the values forward into the 2020 budget correct? While I was trying to do this I was unable to find a way to be able to. Without being able to start with 2019. You could go to reports -> Spending -> Itemized categories to be able to see your spending for 2019. This wouldn't create the budgets directly so you would still be manually typing in the numbers.
Hope this helps out!
