changing the category in multiple split transactions
Thank you for reaching out to the Community and telling us about this issue. I'm sorry to hear you're running into this problem. To clarify, is this the error message you are seeing?
I notice that when doing a Find/Replace, it tends to list the top level split transaction, then right under it, lists the portion of the split that is relevant to the search. The trick to avoiding the error message above is to select the relevant portion of the split rather than the main transaction.
If you are getting a different error, then including a screenshot may help us to see what is happening. Please make sure to obscure or blur out any personal information in the screenshot. If needed, please refer to this Community FAQ for instructions on how to attach a screenshot. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop screenshots to your response if you are not given the option to add attachments.
