The auto-populated budget gives many lines that will never be used. Can I hide a line that shows, a line that is irrelevant to the budget process. (In the screen-shot, there are 6 _401K...... categories that I do not wish to see in my budget.)

    Solved it myself by eliminating "Categories"

    @Richard A Carmack If I may ask, how did you do this? I am trying to eliminate certain line items or categories from my budget view.

    For example, i just want to focus on normal monthly expenses and dont want to include college expenses for my kids. The college expenses are "active" as I (usually) pay something every month, but would prefer not to have them in my budget view.

    How to eliminate? Thanks!!

    On a somewhat related question - is there any way to change the default graph type on the expense graph? The line graph would the multiple categories is a bit of information overload. I would much prefer a bar graph to look at total monthly spend. YNAB had a graph like this that I used quite a bit. You could look at total monthly spend in the "bar" and drill down to individual categories as needed. Thanks!

    The summary page thermometer graph works like what you want (I think) for expenses and income.
