    Click on the Edit Budget icon / text located just below the budget title in upper left of a budget display, then in that resulting editor display, click on the Select Categories button in the lower left. A list of categories will appear with a check beside each category that is currently in the budget. 

    Verify that the Show filter (at the bottom of the list, on the right side) is set appropriately (Used and/or Unused).
