Inactive Merchandise Categories show in the daily sales merchandise search

When searching for merchandise in the daily sales merchandise screen you may notice that inactive merchandise categories show in the search
Our Product Development team has reviewed this issue, its impact in the software, and the availability of an alternative solution. After careful consideration, we have determined that this issue will not be addressed currently in the Altru software. Product Development will be focusing development resources in other existing areas of the product, as well as new feature development. To workaround this issue you can rename the inactive categories to something like DO NOT USE to avoid confusion when the categories show in the search screen.
