Quicken 2014 Budget Category "Other" now "Everything Else"?I just downloaded Quicken 2014 Premier R2 from Amazon and so far I am pleasantly surprised. It runs faster, they seem to have tightened up the budget coding so that more accurate information can be obtained. However they just had to change something.
In the budget planning tab in every category that has a subcategory there is now a category in each called "Everything Else". When I click the "Select Categories to Budget" on the lower left I expected to see that the "Other" category had been replaced with the "Everything Else" category but that was not the case. I believe that was the intent but once again somebody thought that Everything Else" would be better than "Other" and in the process of implementing that change they did so poorly. "Other" is still listed (and they are all NOT selected) and "Everything Else" is nowhere to be found.
I tried to highlight one of the "Everything Else" categories, right click and select "Remove Category" to delete it but ir is not removed. There are no transactions in any of the "Everything Else" categories so how does one delete them?
This should be an option when the program is installed or updated by having a popup ask "Do you want to add an "Everything Else" category to all subcategories, Yes or No.
