can i have different category lists for different accounts?

I would like to shorten the category list so that i dont have to scroll through so much. Different accounts need different categories, i customized one list, and now that list appears in all other accounts. is there a way to have a truncated list for account A, and a different truncated list for account B?

    Hi @Newbie10!,

    Unfortunately there is only one "category list" per Quicken data file and it does appear for all "accounts" in Quicken.  However the category list is broken down into subsets (depending on which version you are using) and those subsets - such as "personal income", "personal expenses", and "transfers" - do make it easier to navigate a category list that is very long.

    Hope this helps!
