Categories not appearing in reports

I have at least one category that will not appear in any report, even though it is manually selected in the list of categories to include. In this case, it's an income/expense type report. These categories are Income categories, and the structure of this area of the report is:
> Parent Category
  - Child Category 1
  - Child Category 2
Although all of these categories are selected to be included, and both child categories have transactions and balance during the selected time period, only Child Category 1 shows up in the report. In case it's relevant:
Child Catetory 1 has existed for many years, but was recently moved within the category list.
Child Category 2 was only recently created.
Many other categories have also existed for many years and successfully appear in the reports; some of which have recently been moved around within the category list and some of which have not been moved.

Any idea why this is happening and/or how to correct it?

    Are you sure the cat is selected in the report? Can you send a screenshot of this?

    Are you sure the cat has txns? Can you use tools/categories/right click/open and look at the txns?

    With help/console open, can you tools/categories, right click on both cat 1 and then cat 2 and show details and send the details here?

    Can you upload help/console here?
