Expense categories only offer income categories to be selected when try to make the subcategories.

I am trying to adjust how I budget my rental expenses. To do this, I would like to make certain rental expense categories a subcategory of a new "budget" category I have created. That way I can just create a budget for the new category and not all of its subs. The issue is when I try to go and change the old rental expense categories from being expense categories to being a "subcategory of", I am only offered income categories in the drop-down list. There are no expense categories shown. I see all sorts of income categories, including both rental property income and personal income, but not a single expense category. Why would this be? It should either show only expense categories or all categories in my mind. Is this just a glitch, or am I missing something?

    Can you show us image snapshots of what you have done so far and what you are trying to do?
    You cannot (or should not) have a parent category with mixed income and expense subcategories.
    I recommend staying with the default category groups of Rental Property Income and Rental Property Expense.

    Can you show us? Create a screen snapshot, save it to a PNG, JPG or GIF file and then, using Windows File Explorer, drag and drop the file into your next comment on this webpage.

    "Subcategory of" showing only income accounts, no expense accounts.

    where is the solution - I never get expenses either - only Income which somehow has changed recently
