Unmatch and Rematch a transaction

I made a mistake matching a downloaded transaction to one in the register. I'd like to be able to unmatch the transaction, correct the mistake by adding another split and then re-matching.
Is there any way this is possible?

    Are you using automatic transaction entry mode (transactions go directly into the register) or are you accepting them through the Downloaded Transactions tab?

    Here are a four ways:
    1. If you haven't already accepted the transaction into the register, you may unmatch and manually match the transaction in the Downloaded Transactions tab
    2. You may restore a backup saved before you accepted the transaction into the register.
    3. You may edit the matched transaction to be the intended transaction and the intended transaction to be the matched transaction.
    4. You may recreate the register.

    If using automatic transaction entry mode, and you have yet to set the status to "Reviewed", you can select the status New Match and select to unmatch it.

    Thank you for your replies.

    I'm not using automatic transaction entry mode. I accept them individually through the downloaded transaction tab and realized I had made a mistake with one of them. The transaction has been matched and accepted into the register.

    There are several splits (multiple categories to itemize) within this one transaction. If I were to add another split (Payee, Category, lets say $75) into this matched/accepted transaction, would this match to the initial registry entry of said Payee, Category, $75, since I don't get to choose which ones to match and accept? Will this affect the "Ending Balance"?

    Or is the only way to restore from a backup?

    I suggest you edit the matched split transaction such that the total is unchanged.  If you add an entry of $75, you may reduce the other entries in the split by $75.

     Again, in addition to restoring a backup, you also have the option of recreating the register.

    I added the missing split and adjusted the other splits so the bottom $ remained the same.

    Thanks again for your help!
