You used to be able to select "create scheduled transaction" on a dividend
entry in the journal and have it create a schedule entry matching the dividend
transaction. It may never have been able to be created directly in the schedule
editor, but it was possible to create them. Once created, you could modify them
as needed in the schedule editor (dates, amounts, frequency) as the only item
that was specific to dividends (the stock in question) was never likely to

At some point, the create scheduled transaction was desensitized in the journal
as well, however this really did remove a useful feature. This was quite a
while ago, but I'm pretty sure I didn't edit the XML by hand the first time to
add a dividend. Maybe I did - I've been using it for a long time, but I really
think it was available (intentional or not). When it was available from the
journal editor, it did correctly enter the data as a dividend and not as Buy

Even if the schedule editor is not modified to handle dividends, creating
something from the journal again would be a big help. It isn't a lot of fun
saving to XML and editing by hand, and quarterly dividends are just as annoying
to post as utility bills if you have a lot of them to post. As long as you are
bringing up a list of transactions to choose from in the schedule editor,
though, it shouldn't be that hard to check for the presence of a security and
include it in the schedule.
