Hm that is strange. I was told both sides should not be able to handle it. Let me forward this discussion to my team so they can investigate.
I just spoke to my team and apparently this restriction is put intentionally for now. The reason is that currently the way MoneyWiz determines the transaction type is related to the category (as we have separate expense & income categories) and the logic breaks if we have a single transaction in multiple categories with different signs. We'll have to figure out how to mitigate this sort of situation but we'll probably do that sometime in MoneyWiz 3's development as right now we're focused on investment accounts and after that we'll start working on MoneyWiz 3.
Just to make sure I understand correctly...you are speaking to having +/- sign in a split transaction, right? I ask because if a transaction is not split, then this is already allowed (as of few versions ago).
I just want to reassure you we are not keeping the major update from any of the apps. Once we release we'll release it for all apps, all platforms at the same time.
We're preparing it for next week release. We're actually trying for this Friday but I don't think we'll be ready this Friday so it will probably go towards next week sometime (perhaps near the end of the week).
When will 2.5 update be released? I need to enter negative amounts into transactions, in fact at the moment I can't import transactions from app I was previously using (anMoney). There are many use cases where negative transactions are useful:
- Partial refunds
- Selling items. For example, if I buy a car and later sell them, I don't see the point to create an income category for this, I see more logic in discounting the residual price in the expense category Car
- Gambling (you can win or lose)
In the 2.5 update, we'll allow to offset both expense and income categories by any amounts: http://moneywizapp.com/changes-coming-moneywiz/ but we're keeping the expense and income categories separate for now.
Still no update to merge categories for income and expenses as well as the plus and minus option?
I've looked into your case and I see there's lots of activity in the developer thread. I also see that you've received an update from us today.
The particular issue you're experiencing is indeed slightly complicated but I'm certain we can fix this. We'll be updating you in the e-mail thread once we have some updates to share.
