Wrong partner's capital

In the ProConnect tax, I am preparing 1065 and Schedule K-1, and I found big problems regarding each partner's capital account.  

Although the Beginning capital in the total amount is correct, as it is from the last year's ending balance, K-1 shows a completely wrong amount for each partner, and even though the TOTAL capital at the beginning of 2018 is the same as the capital balance of all partners' at the ending of 2017, each partner's beginning balance is calculated by the program, based on the percentage at the end of 2018, based on the CURRENT year's ENDING percentage!!!   How could the program have done this?  It applies the current year's ENDING percentage to the BEGINNING capital amount for each partner!!

And I wanted to overwrite each beginning capital amount because the are NOT consistent with the last year's capital amount of each partner, but there is no place to overwrite, or to manually enter each partner's capital amount.  Only in the Basis worksheet, you can enter each partner's capital balance, withdrawal, contribution, etc. but any entry in the basis worksheet is not reflected, and the program completely ignores all the entries in the basis worksheet.

I can't use this wrongfully calculated K-1 to the partners, and I can't complete and file 1065 for the partnership.

Intuit's developer has to do some fix on this issue.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
