Display category hierarchy in Transaction View (edited)

edited December 2021 in Feature Requests
I find myself double-checking if a sub-category is in fact the child of the parent category I intended, which feels like time wasted.
It would be great if you could display, when assigning a category, the parent category, or create a visual queue that IDs it as a sub-category. 
e.g. Parent Category is above, smaller and light grey, or a little arrow to ID it's a sub-cat, etc.

    Yes, I have the same request.  Consider that I have two parent categories "Personal Expense" and "Business Expense", and in each of those parent categories I have a sub-category of "Gas".  

    As it is right now, when I view a transaction that has a category assigned of "Gas", I have no visual means of seeing if that is a "Personal Expense->Gas" sub-category or "Business Expense->Gas" sub-category. 

    So I have to spend time reassigning the category just to make sure.
