Collapse/Expand all categories in Category view window (Q Mac)

timg2556 Member ✭✭
I spent a long time cleaning up and merging my categories. This was hampered by the fact that all categories were always expanded. Sure would be nice to have a little "collapse all categories" button at the bottom. Also, of course the previously requested idea to be able to hide obsolete categories, just as we can with accounts.

    I think this idea is worth keeping active, as I think it would be a helpful enhancement to Quicken Mac. I find I waste a lot of time scrolling through my long Categories list, and it would help as great deal to be able to Collapse All, scroll a little, and expand the category I'm looking for.

    I also think it would help for the Category window to retain the collapsed/expanded status of categories across sessions. As long as there's an Expand All/Collapse All button(s) to press, retaining a partially collapsed state could be useful.

    And while this is a separate idea, while we're on the Categories window, I'll put in a plug here for making the column headings clickable and sort-able. In particular, I sometimes want to see just my income categories, but it doesn't allow sorting by the Type column to group them all together. Or sorting by Status, to group all Used and Unused categories together is sometime helpful.

    I totally agree with Jacobs. Too much wasted time scrolling through a Accounts or category list that won't collapse all or expand all.
