How do I set up a Liability Account so that a payment from checking reflects the decrease owed in the liability area?

    Create a new liability account by clicking Account->"New Account"

    Set the type to be Liability.

    Give the account a name, e.g. "Debt"

    Set the initial balance to be the value of the liability.

    To pay the liability click on your checking account on the home page.

    Click the new transaction button.

    Enter a transaction and select the liability account from the category list in the category column.

    Enter the amount in the payment column.

    See the attached screen shot.
