Version 3.01 of Goldenseal construction cost estimating software properly updates the category system in a breakdown table, even when the Category System field is not on the same data entry layout.

Technical Details

This is fallout from the recent change to "more info" windows for some fields in Goldenseal accounting software. Changes in the extra windows weren't updating the main layout, so fields in the main layout would not pick up changes in category system, job type, etc.
