Need a new 1040 from 2020 data file

I "quit and saved" my 2020 file to send for review with my accountant. I later updated my datafile and completed the operation, but it produced a 1040X, not a 1040.

Can I produce a new 1040 from the 1040X? 

This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

Well you must be using the downloaded version so this is a simple fix ...    

How do I cancel or undo an amended return in the TurboTax CD/Download software?

If you started amending your federal return by accident and would like to cancel the amendment, follow this process to correctly "unamend" your federal return:

  1. Open your return.
  2. Switch to Forms Mode (Windows instructions | Mac instructions).
  3. In the left pane, select Form 1040X.
    • Windows: After the form is generated in the right pane, click the Delete Form button at the bottom of the window.
    • Mac: From the Forms menu, select Remove Form 1040X.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove the 1040X from your return

regardless of whether you delete the 1040-X, 1040-X is dependent on Form 1040.

So print your return and ignore the 1040-X if it is not relevant.
