How do we enter a refund for credit balance that was part of a repayment/deposit?

Our client made a prepayment/deposit by credit card. We originally entered the payment using "receive payments" without having entered an invoice, so they wound up with a negative balance. When the order was complete we entered an invoice which was lower than the total amount prepaid due to some order changes. We then did "receive payments" to link the prepayment to the invoice balance.

There's now a small credit showing on the customer balance that we refunded by credit card. How do we enter the refund and clear the credit balance.

You can use Write Check and in the details on the Expense view, use AR and enter the customer's name. This creates a charge you will then see if you go to the Receive Payment screen again, and you can apply that payment to this Check.

I believe if you just click on the payment, on the left side of the screen, there should be a box that is checked as "Leave credit to be used later". Uncheck that and the check "Refund amount to the customer".

I'm on QB 2012 MAC. I don't see any option on the left side of the screen for "refund amount to customer".  I went into the payment that was entered a few weeks ago in the "customer payments" and there's no option like that.
