(I'm using KMM compiled from git head of 5.1 branch)
First - It seems a category cannot be deleted if it is the default
category for a payee. That seems to be why all these categories cannot
A000111 is default category for P002488 and P002504, and removing those
default categories enables delete for that category.
Delete is not enabled for Category A000004, even after is becomes
enable for A000111.
A000053 (delete disabled) is subcategory of A000018 (delete enabled)
A000057, 088, and 106 are each the default category for one or three
A000005 is a default category for Payee 002440.
Trying to delete category A000046 first asked which other category to
assigne associated transactions, and then said that there were sub
categoreis which could not be deleted, and to proceed, they would be
made subcategories of Exmpense.
Are you sure that when you deleted a parent category, the undeletable
subcategory was really deleted along with it, or was it just moved up
to a top level expense category?
Question for the developers: when you delete a category, it asks what
other category to assign associated transactions to. Is there any
reason not to reassign payee default categories (and scheduled
transactions) in the same way?
