Hi
Found myself among the people who need to change categories currency, mostly because by some weird reason reports are generated based on category currencies instead of the base currency.

There are multiple requests for this feature:

..and more, with support saying that this is impossible because it will mess up existing transactions.

I tried creating new categories with desired currency and batch moving transactions to it, didn't work well. I also tried to use find and replace extension but it seems to be buggy as it applies conversion rates to already converted amounts.

Anyways, long story short, thanks to extensions API I concocted this extension.

Use at your own risk. Works fine for me, all my balances stayed put after I changed currencies of ~20 heavily used categories. No guarantees though and I highly recommend making a backup first.
