Why does TurboTax default to claiming charitable donations on lower-income spouse's return and why does it not allow this to be easily overridden?

This seems to be a longstanding problem that has been identified over many years (https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/community/credits-deductions/discussion/charitable-donations-ca...) but presumably never fixed.  It's quite frustrating.
