I have just switched from banktivity to moneydance and am entering all of my expense / income categories. I noticed that they do not automatically alphabetise themselves once I'm done. This is not a problem when I am setting up the program, but if I decide to create a new category in the future it will just annoy me that it's not alphabetically listed in the drop down menu when I enter in a new transaction.
Is there a way to automatically alphabetise the categories?

I'm a fellow user.
Categories are in a hierarchical structure but within their section of the hierarchy they are in alphabetical order,
The basic split of categories is Expense categories first then Income categories. So on the expense side it looks something like:
and on the income side
So the top level categories occur in Alphabetic order and their sub categories are in alphabetic order underneath them.
In drop down lists the category is given from the top down with each level separated by a colon, so with one of the examples from above would show Interest:Term Deposits.
You can see the structure if you go to the menu item Tools --> Categories
As the Category field is also used for transfers in account registers the account list is shown first in the drop down.

Thanks for your quick reply. I figured it out. The new and old categories and sub categories automatically alphabetise themselves after Moneydance is closed and reopened the next time. =)
I was just too impatient and wanted it alphabetised as soon as I hit "done".
