Split transactions - prefilling remaining amount

Let's say I have a $100 transaction and want to record $36.72 in one category and the remainder in another category. In Quicken, if I enter $36.72 in the first split line, the second split line prefills with $63.28 (assuming I've already entered $100 as the amount for the entire transaction). It does not appear to me that Moneydance does this, or else I haven't figured out how to do it.

I use this feature a lot in Quicken. For example, if I buy a bunch of stuff at Target, most of the items purchased will fall in my Household Supplies category, but maybe one item is a gift. When splitting the transaction, I enter the amount of the gift item first, and then Quicken computes the amount of the remaining items for me.
