Recording commissions/fees

My investment accounts have periodic plan expenses. In Quicken 2016, I recorded these as a Sell, with the # of Shares, the amount in Commissions, and Total Sale as $0. I just converted to Quicken for Windows, and this approach was working just fine in 1 account but not another. It keeps updating the Total Sale as -$0 and subtracting the amount from my cash account balance.

For example, I'm trying to record $16.54 in Commissions and it's overriding the Total Sale as -$16.54. Previously, I was able to leave the Total Sale as $0. 

Is this a bug or should I be recording this information differently?

    Is this a sale of a security to produce that $16.54? Or is it a deduction from your cash balance?
