How can I get the Canadian Caregiver credit to populate on line 307?

In the 2018 online standard tax version, I can NOT get the Canada caregiver amount to populate on line 307 -even though I entered the information in the appropriate dialogue area. After "continuing" I get a screen saying, "Good News! Your dependant(s) qualified you for tax credits!" but no figures show in any of the categories listed. This is for an infirm dependant 18 years old or older and I was able to do this on the 2017 version which I can confirm on the Year Over Year comparison. Adding to my frustration, there seems to be no way to get to Schedule 5 to review the submission. How can I fix this to claim the caregiver amount in 2018?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange 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.
