Totals in the Inspector
Ever noticed those totals on the right of your budget?
When you have no categories selected, those tell you the sums of each column, for all categories.
This is the sum of the Budgeted amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected):
Pro Tip: Check your hidden categories (at the bottom of your budget) if you're having trouble getting the numbers to line up.
This is the sum of the Activity amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected):
This is the sum of the Available amounts for the selected categories (or all categories if none are selected):
Pro Tip: This includes money that is set aside for credit card payments.
This is the sum of all transactions in cash, checking, and savings accounts categorized as Inflow: To be Budgeted in the current month. This line is only shown when no categories are selected.
Pro Tip: This may include outflows that have the Inflow: To be Budgeted category, including balance adjustments made throughout the month -- but not inflows in negative-balance credit card accounts.
Viewing Selected Categories:
When you have multiple categories selected, you'll see a summary displayed in a panel on the right-hand side:
This can be a great way to view data about a single Category Group, a few common spending categories, or any set of categories you want to view quickly together. You can always return to the month overview by de-selecting the categories, either individually or all at once by clicking the " - " symbol on the top left side of your budget. When there aren't any specific categories selected, the totals in the inspector represent all the categories in your budget.
You can also use the Quick Budget options with multiple categories selected to quickly adjust your budget throughout the month!
