I seem to have a bug, it was happening after the last update of last year and in the 2019 version. After I enter the category and then confirm the entry, the category changes to something random and I have to change it back. Is this a general bug? I'm on a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7, running high sierra 10.13.6.

    Hello Jonny,

    Can you clarify where you are entering the category? If you are entering it on the transaction itself (as opposed to the field next to the confirm button), you will then have to press enter or click to another transaction to save the change before confirming. If you make the change in the category field of the transaction but click confirm before saving the change, your selection will not be saved.

    If that's not what you're referring to, could you describe what you are clicking on in a bit more detail, perhaps with screenshots? If you're not sure how to take a screenshot, please see

    Are you changing the category in the register or the confirmation box? It makes a difference.
