Unable to input SALE of stock.
I am trying to enter the sale of a stock and I keep getting the message "You should use 2 transactions, one to sell the shares you hold and one to create your short position." Problem is I am selling all of my shares and I click the button "Sell all shares in the account" so Quicken knows I am selling all the shares. The history of this stock is that it was listed on a Canadian Exchange but closed that listing and moved to the USA. It consolidated its shares and the fractional shares were "sold" for a cash payment. I am now selling the remaining shares. I assume there is some internal rounding error in Quicken that is causing the problem and even Quicken doesn't know about it because it enters ALL my shares but it also can't get it right. I'm using the Canadian Subscription version. My confidence in Quicken is quickly evaporating with all the technical issues I'm getting.
