Credit Card transactions reversed?
In my credit card accounts, the money spent is marked as "outflow" and payment amounts are marked as "inflow". This seems to be correct, however, the behavior within the budget is not expected.
For example, a card I owe money on has a balance of -$100.00, whilst my bank shows me as having a balance of $100. In the budget it marks this as me having an "Available Amount" of $100.00 in green. This does not seem correct, as I owe $100.00 on the card and have budgeted $0 to the account.
Is there any way to reverse this or is this the intended behavior? I tried to go back and swap all the transactions so the CC balance would line up correctly, but all the payments from my checking accounts then went as inflows to the respective accounts, causing them to be wildly out of sync.

For whatever reason, the CC websites typically quote what you owe as a positive number. YNAB deals with both debt and cash and uses a negative account balance to denote debt.
