Summary: Add category adds as subcategory of selected, which
doesn't match the Name line.
Version: Trunk from git
Target Milestone: ---
Adding a category adds it as a subcategory of what's selected, which is
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
For example you want to add a subcategory of Bills (one of the standard
categories) called Internet
1. Open Skrooge, click Categories
2. Click Bills, then click Bills > Fuel Oil (I think this is one of the
3. Type "Internet" in place of "Fuel Oil" in the Name line.
4. Click the + add button.
The Name line displays Bills > Internet , but the new category is created as a
subcategory of what you had previously selected, i.e. Bills > Fuel Oil >
The Name line should match what category is created, so if it shows Bills >
Internet, then that's the hierarchy I would expect gets created. However, that
would make it hard when you want to create a subcategory of something that
doesn't have any existing subcategories. Hmmm... hard problem!
KDE Plasma Version: n/a
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.59.0
Qt Version: 5.12.4 (xcb)
The workaround to unexpected behavior is to drag the newly-created category
where it belongs.
The Skrooge Handbook
explain the Add behavior, and should mention that you can drag categories into
and out of subcategories to rearrange them in case the new category isn't where
you want it in the hierarchy.
The Add action for Categories uses a different icon and layout and has no help
or tooltip (Bug 409703); maybe its help/tooltip could dynamically show the
result of clicking it, e.g. "Create new subcategory of Bills > Fuel Oil").
