Sell security to pay a fee

I've transfered some security to another account, and the fees was taken from the security itself.

For example, I had 30$ fee removed as 1.8320 units at 19.10$ per shares.

I don't have any solution to do this in one transaction. The only thing I see is to sell this units and then use MiscExp transaction to 'pay' the fees. Is there another better method to do it ?

    You can try a SellXfr with the proceeds going to an expense category.

    I have used the suggestion from dwg successfully for a mutual fund that would draw a fee every quarter.
