Can't select Itemized Deduction in TT 2019

I can't find a way to override Standard Deduction in TT2019.

 

Every post asked why would you want to do this.  I am very close to the standard deduction amount when itemizing.  Virginia uses your federal basis.  The Virginia itemized deduction has additional state items that in total result in a lower combined tax.

After resetting my preferences in the Tools Section to Itemized deductions as described in the earlier post, Turbo-tax 2019 continues to block me from manually entering the data - the data input boxes are not active and fixed at $0.

To access your current or prior year tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

Continue your tax return.

Tax Tools is on the left side of the screen if you are using a real computer with a maximized screen.

I have experienced this problem when trying to enter property taxes.  TT 2019 will not allow entry.  CA return cannot find property tax to show as a deduction.  If I override the program and enter it manually on CA form the CA taxes are recalculated.
