I need to report a long-term capital gain on line 6 of my 1040, where in the TurboTax tool do I put the amount so it ends up there?

I don't have any forms for this capital gain, it was realized outside the US and they don't do US tax forms.

I don't understand what "wks type F" means.  I don't have a 1099 form for this capital gain.  I don't know where in TurboTax you are talking about??? What question do I answer "yes" to in order to get to the right section?
