All account and budget categories match.

I also got the master categories "Income" and "_Internal_", but both are empty.

I notice notes don't transfer. I have no idea if that's even doable, but just throwing it out there.

One humorous note; The Pre-Financier Debt master category is of course called Pre-YNAB Debt.   ;D

Hmm, notes should transfer. At least the account and budget cell notes. (Month notes need to be implemented in Financier first before I can add them. ;) )

Well said, ditto.

My account and cell notes come though but not the budget category notes.

Yeah, I just restored again to be sure and the notes didn't transfer.

What are you referring to when you say cell notes?

The actual note that you can put in each of the cells where you type the amount you want to budget each month.

OK pretty sure I have broken something, after playing with imported budget for a while I logged back in and allowed it to sync and thats when everything stopped working properly. After about 30 seconds the app said sync successful but then every 10 seconds it started syncing again and got stuck in a sync loop. I tried clearing the local budget and logging in again but none of my budgets reappears and its just stuck in the sync loop. :(

I also just noticed at the top it says you shouldn't sync these budgets oops. But I was following the directions from the link where it says once you happy you can sync them.  :-\

@ottyacat A sync loop shouldn't be possible. I'd recommend logging out + clearing budgets and then logging back in. Should be fine. :)

Import worked fine here, too

I have a LOT of hidden categories, which I just moved to the bottom and collapsed. I notice that the budget for month tool also will budget in the hidden categories, though, which is probably not wanted (and doesn't happen in ynab4). Side note; average of last three months seem to just take one third of previous months budget?

Great work, thanks for pushing on! :)
