Feature request - positves = debits; negatives = credits

I don't believe this setting already exists - if so, please enlighten me!


QBO often presents numbers contextually on reports. For example, when I drill on equity accounts from a trial balance, the numbers are presented as positives in the subreport (though they are actually credits on the t/b). I understand the motivation behind this simplification, but I would love an option to tell QBO not to behave this way. When navigating in the GL, I'd prefer to see positive figures indicating debits and negatives indicating credits, universally. I find this QBO U/I hand-holding more confusing than seeing what the actual accounting entries should look like.


My two cents; again, if that's an existing option, please let me know.


Thanks all.
