: Recording Transactions Without Rounding Errors
(1) "Investments (all)" displays all recorded investment transactions, not the balance of the investment. Editing here just edits the number of shares in the last transaction, not what I want.
(2) The prescribed editing procedure (edit button) permits setting the number of shares to any number other than zero. (This is reasonable since the field are being multiplied by another field.) I want to zero out the investment. If I could get past the problem in (1) above, I might try setting the number of shares to 0.000001. That's pretty close to zero, but there should be a cleaner way to edit the current number of shares. Maybe I'm missing something in your instructions.
