I've never had to do this myself, but I think this is where you would 
use a split, where you enter the denominator in the quantity field, 
which would take care of the quantity adjustment.  However, then you 
have to take care of the change of name.

I would probably use remove and add rather than sell and buy.  Whether 
you do the split before or after, is probably your choice.  There could 
possibly even be a case for a third, interim, stock, to receive the 
removed amount, do the split on those, then remove those and add to your 
real second stock.  Whether that is necessary, or better, or silly, is 
again your choice.
