How do I enter charitable donations carried forward from a previous year?

How do I enter charitable donations carried forward from a previous year? Where is the option to submit donations carried forward? Is there a Carried Forward From Last Year Charitable Donations page?

In EasyStep, click on the "Find" icon on the toolbar.  Search for "Donations" in Index tab and click "Go". It will go to "Donations profile for 2014" page.  You can check the "Unclaimed donation contributions carried forward from a previous tax return".  Click on "Continue" will land on the "Charitable donations carried forward" and you can enter info there.

I could enter 2014 donations and TurboTax had my unused donations from 2013,but nothing appeared on Schedule 9 when printed. Is this because I again did not use them? Shouldn't the carry forward show up somewhere - I did enter all the details on the screen.

Turbo will use Political & medical payments first as they're not so easily carried forward.
If that reduces tax to zero, then all the  charitable donations are carried forward. Some users are having trouble carrying this amount forward because they use a Mac. I use a Mac with no trouble that way for three years.
