Budget

Can someone tell me how I can simply add an annual budget, print that budget, and the difference YTD? I can't believe how hard this simple task is. It only seems to allow you to input monthly expenses and compare with remainder budget. [removed - rant]

    Note that the Starter edition only has the Monthly view.  If you want the Annual view you have to have Deluxe or above.
