EasyStep Transfer Tuition and Education bug has been reported a year ago. Has it been fixed in TurboTax 2018?

1) I was preparing the self-assessment documents using the EasyStep Interview.  There is a question:
  • To whom are you transferring these unused tuition and education amounts?

on the screen "Transfer Tuition and Education (Federal)".  I selected "Parent or Grandparent" So far, so good. 

The next screen "Transfer Tuition and Education (Provincial)" says:

  • Since you chose to transfer Federal credits to your parent or grandparent, you can transfer all or part of your Provincial tuition credits to this person.  Enter the provincial amount you wish to designate to transfer on your T2202A, TL11A, TL11B, or TL11C.

I entered the desired amount  (not exceeding the one shown on the same screen) and continued the EasyStep interview till the very end.

2) I inspected the printed documents and found that:

2-a) there is an "X" mark besides the "Parent or grandparent" in the Schedule 11, and

2-b) there is an "X" mark besides the Spouse" in the Schedule ON(S11).

One may observe that 2-a) matches the person to whom I desire to transfer credits , while 2-b) doesn't.  Please, escalate to the Development Team this bug.  I am asking since it is a real pain to remember to  switch to the "forms method" and manually adjust information in Schedule ON(S11).

Please, be aware that this bug was reported a year ago (see https://turbotax.community.intuit.ca/questions/1667618-easystep-transfer-tuition-and-education-bug).  As far as I remember, TurboTaxJennifer promised to pass it to the Development Team. For some unknown reason, the link has not been kept  in the system and no availability of the bug fix has been passed back to the community.

    Best regards,

    Sensei

Answer

I opened ticket with the TurboTax Support Team.

Please, be aware that this bug may no longer be relevant in provinces/territories where the Tuition and Education credit has been eliminated.

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.
