Is this not an option or am I missing something
You cannot select and then bulk recode anything to a control account, because Manager does not know the subaccount to apply. This restriction is the same as applies to bank rules.
However, after clicking on the Find & recode button, you can edit individual transactions on the list that appears.
I just made an account in expenses and put it to that then I will journal it from account to drawings
Why don’t you just edit the transaction from the Find/Recode list to the required account - subaccount.
Recoding to an expense account then doing journals is duplicating, time consuming and cumbersome.
