Mac Version - Unable to Move Category to Be a Subcategory of a different Category

I moved from the Windows version to the Mac version a couple of years ago. One thing I was hoping to still be able to do is to edit a category to be in a different category than the one I originally assigned it to. Example: I had "Internet Service" to be a household expense, but then created a "Recurring Bills" category that I have Gas&Electric, Water, etc. assigned to. I want to move other recurring expenses to the Recurring Bills category and am unable to. Anyone else want to tweak their categories ?

    You can rearrange categories and subcategories using Drag & Drop.
    Open the Category List (Widows > Categories).
    Select a subcategory.
    Hold down the mouse key and drag to the desired category.

    Note that you also change a category to a subcategory or a subcategory to a category using this procedure.

    Hello @milesdm

    Thank you for contacting the Quicken Community with this question. 

    In order to further assist you, I require some more information. Are you trying to re-categorize past transactions or re-categorize scheduled transactions going forward?

    I look forward to hearing your response.
