Yes, of course this is an investment transaction and the "!Type:Invst" is

Now, to expand on this issue of the "Bad Editor"...
I have moved my accounts to KMM and I just got brave enough to down load from
Fidelity.  KMM seems to have completely forgotten that it is dealing with
linked accounts.  Every transaction has the ! diamond and a missing account

AND again, when I try to edit the entry, the editor supplies the missing
account field with the "Enter" button grayed out.  

And then, when I fudge the editor to enter the transaction, the result in the
(Brokerage) account shows a category of "Investment transaction" which I might
accept for buy and sell actions but for Div transactions, I think a different
category should be used.  

I suggest that the account information be expanded to include:
Default linked (Brokerage) account name
Default Category for Div translations
Default Category for Int transactions 
and that these be used for downloaded (imported) transactions.

I am using KMM 4.6.6 now.
