Copy Transactions - issues modifying the copy?
OK, so a few times a year, we get a bonus. It's a separate paycheck (so X times a year, I get essentially 2 paychecks on the same day). My "regular' paycheck is setup in Quicken using the Paycheck feature. Now, to keep the itemized amounts proper, when I manually enter the bonus check (again, to keep things proper and easier to segregate/find), it seems if I COPY the paycheck transaction and paste it, and then modify anything on the copy, it edits the original so that I end up with two duplicate transactions. Yes, I could manually enter the other one, but have to constantly refer back to the original to see what the itemized categories are to enter into the split. Is there any way to copy something and edit the copy so that it doesn't actually mess up the original? And vice versa? It seems that any other software, when you make a copy, you can edit the original/copy and they keep them segregated, but Quicken seems to create a symbolic/linked copy instead.
