Clicking the Plus sign to expand a Pivot Table field expands all with the same label

I have a Pivot Table in Outline format with expenses vs budget by Department and then Budget Category (People, Travel, etc.). Clicking the Plus sign next to People under one department expands the People category for every Department.

I know using the Collapse/Expand button under Analyze will expand/collapse all but I've never seen this happen with the Plus sign before. The only thing that I can think that is different this time is, under the category Field Settings, I checked the box to "Display labels from the next field in the same column (compact form)" so that my 3rd column (Expense Description) is indented under the Category header instead of in a new column. The Pivot Table looks and works exactly how I want, except for this expansion/collapse.

I don't even understand why enabling that setting would make this happen, but is there any way to make it not do that?
