It would be useful to have somewhere on the screen a note of how many characters fit in the field - rather than entries sometimes being too long and then finding them truncated (and potentially meaningless) when viewing your list of debits and credits!

Also, I like to use the same colours for different entries that, nevertheless, all fit into the same broad group e.g. mobile charges, landline, broadband, etc. for Communication expenditure but find that it’s very difficult without flipping back and forth to match the colours … could they not have a name or number to identity them (for selecting) - not to appear on/with them once they are in situ?

Can you tell me, are you able to split payments and assign them to different categories or can you only assign one category per transaction?
