Multiple categories for a single transaction

I come from Mac OSX, and I loved (and still love) iFinance by Synium.

When I record my credit card monthly detail into iFinance, I have the option to split the invoice total amount into several categories.

For Example, during a given reference month, I can use my card to purchase a train ticket, pay a videogame on Steam, and buy a retrocomputer on ebay paying by PayPal, that charges my credit card.

In this scenario I have 3 different categories of expense, and iFinance gives me the tools to deal with it.

I cannot figure out how to achieve the same result with PF, except by inserting 3 different transactions.

If your software could implement this feature, I could forget my Mac for good. :)

Thanks for your attention.

Best regards.

Hi and thanks for your prompt reply.

This means I have to create a transaction as splitted, otherwise I'll have no chance to modify an existing one, previously imported by external file?

Yes, there is no way to convert transaction to split. Probably I'll add this feature in future version.

The Split transaction show each of the categories like separate charges, there is some way to capture one charge with multiple concepts? For example, $1,000.00 Home and show every charge $ 500.00 Rent and $500.00 Furniture, because when i make the check with the bank list i want to see just one charge of $1,000.00 to check, if i see two charges of $500.00 is not to easy to identificate in the bank charges list.
