I wanted to add a "Supplies" category under "Household".  I right-clicked Household, but there was no "Add category" option.  I figured out the Add button at the bottom does that.  But it made a "Household" category under "Household."  I right-clicked the entry, but there's no "Rename category".  I typed in the box next to Add, changing Household to Supplies, but nothing changed.  I hit enter, nothing changed.  Finally I figured out that I have to click Modify.

By the way, the UI for entering split transactions is...uh...cramped, to say the least.

This is confusing and tedious.  I'm sorry, but I think I'll stick with GnuCash until Skrooge matures.  I love KDE, but GnuCash is very quick and efficient to use when you learn it.  And when you're entering lots of boring numbers on a routine basis, efficency is very important.

Reproducible: Didn't try
