Right-click on --Split Transaction-- and choose remove transaction splits from 
the menu, then OK it. After you save the transaction the new one will not 
have splits

Still a few bugs in the system... Someday I have to tell you about Uncle
Nahum from Maine, who spent years trying to cross a jellyfish with a shad
so he could breed boneless shad.  His experiment backfired too, and he
wound up with bony jellyfish... which was hardly worth the trouble.  There's
very little call for those up there.
