Hello, how do I edit a deposit in a trust account? It was entered incorrectly and I need to change the amount of the deposit. Thanks!

You can simply delete the trust deposit that was done incorrectly and redo the trust deposit with correct amount. This article shows how to delete the deposited funds from QuickBooks. Then you can go back to LeanLaw and make the trust deposit with correct amount.
