Investment Cash Category vs. Bank Cash Category
I have an expense category that has multiple subcategories. (i.e, Hobbies - with Photography, Crafting, Woodworking as subcategories). Sometimes my expense doesn't fit exactly into a subcategory, so I simply use the primary category (i.e. Hobbies). When I do this an a bank account expense transaction, the itemized reports creates Hobbies:Other in the report to show all the expenses that were specified to a subcategory. However, I decided to use cash from an investment account and simply put "Hobbies" as a Withdrawal Expense category. But this is showing in the itemized report as "Hobbies" and not "Hobbies:Other" - so all my "non subcategory Hobbies" are now on 2 different lines in my report (Hobbies is the first line and Hobbies:Other is the last line). WHY IS THIS???? The category on both the Bank account and Investment account transactions is exactly the same - "Hobbies" with no subcategory. Why are cash investment transactions handled differently in reporting? This is not an "investment" transaction - I'm just using the associated cash from my investment account to buy something.
