I initially created my saving accounts as "on budget" and now want to move them off budget. I'd prefer not to re-create them, though, I can re-import and re-categorize if necessary. Is there a way to move an on budget account off budget?

Seeing "Subscribe!" in top right of desktop app, but I am subscribed

Unfortunately, I'm not sure if this is due to v0.0.102 but I'm suddenly seeing "Subscribe!" in the top right. I tried entering my code from January but it said it is invalid. Syncing still works between Desktop and iOS so maybe it's just a UI thing?

Transfers
