Entering a negative Sales Receipt



I am a new QuickBooks user. I use QuickBooks 2016 The Missing Manual as a reference.  On Chapter 13 Managing Accounts Receivable Section Cash Sales, Subsection Reconciling Excess and Short Cash (p370), there is a discussion about creating a negative cash receipts when there is cash short at the end of the day. But that doesn't seem to be allowed in QB. I followed the description verbatim, but could not succeed. I would like to know if there is anything I might have missed.
