Adding Income Category Doesn't Appear to Work

Asked by Richard Sutton on 2019-10-03

I am running HomeBank v.5.2.8 on Windows 10 and on Arch Linux and I can't add a new Category for Income. When I press Manage->Categories-Income-Add, then type in the new Category, nothing happens. I have tried pressing Add again, but nothing. What am I doing wrong? How do I add a new Category?

this is described into the documentation
http://homebank.free.fr/help/dlg-cate.html

- press Manage->Categories-Income-Add
- this will expand the inputs where you can type your category name, then ENTER, same for subcategories

I don't know what my problem was, but your instructions solved it for me. Thanks for the fine work you do.

I have a similar problem adding any categories or sub categories.
I take on board your instructions above, but no ENTER button appears.

Incidently, running on Wind10. Also tried uninstalling, and reinstalling.

Hi Martyn,

In this case, "ENTER" refer to pressing enter on your keyboard, not a button that would appear.
Hopefully this will let you add a category.

Thanks for your help. No problems now.
Kind regards
Martyn
