Moving shorted stock from one investment account to another

Hi, I'm a long-time MS Money user and tonight decided to try out AceMoney. I have successfully imported all my account and investment transactions so is in the process of validating the import. The first thing I did was check my investment account. Immediately, I already noticed something wrong. Here's the situation.

I have shorted a stock in investment account#1. Then I moved this shorted stock to investment account#2. In MS Money, I used a "Transfer in Short" activity to perform the transfer from investment account#1 to investment account#2. But the XML import to AceMoney translated this into a Buy action. So instead of being short the stock, I'm actually long. Now I'm trying to correct this, but I can't seem to find the equivalent action for "Transfer in Short".

This is rather important because I need to be able to relate this short sale that occurred on investment account#1 and the subsequent cover that occurred on investment account#2 for the calculation of capital gains.
