Attach 1099 to my efile tax return

I want to attach my 1099 from my brokerage instead of entering all the information by hand.  The software for Business said I would be prompted to do so prior to efiling, but there has not been a prompt, and I have been unable to figure out how to do this.  A call to the support center was useless.  Please advise if this is possible for an efile, and if so, how?  (I have saved a pdf version of the 1099, and can easily attach it.)

I hope one of the "experts" will respond to this, if only to say I can't efile.  Thanks!

Unfortunately you cannot add an attachment to an e-filed tax return. TurboTax doesn't provide this feature, in part because the IRS and state e-file systems would not be able to recognize them as a tax form and check their accuracy.  You would have to print and mail your return.

Other tax programs have been able to do this for years.

check it out.

Hint: it's one of the other two in the top three.

(Moderators get mad if I name other tax software here)

I have the exact problem.  I entered the summary data, TurboTax for Business said I would be prompted to add a pdf of my 1099 before filing,  aaaand nothing.
