Summary page investment balance - does not match accounts

Hi everyone, new MoneyDance user - getting along fairly well so far.

I have two investment accounts with just one security each, the same fund. The register for each investment account is correct, shows the correct investment, and correct single transaction to buy the single fund's shares at current price using the cash starting balance. All good.

But the Summary page shows the value of both accounts shares in one of the accounts (the total is correct, it's added them together), and shows the balance of the other account as $0.

I've poked around trying to see if I made an error somewhere in the register that could have landed the transaction in the other account, but no luck.

    Check Tools>Securities and ensure that:
    - The Security only exists once, not twice.. - If Twice, ensure that the Current Price and the latest rate are set and the same...

    PS - If you do have two master records, then the Toolbox extension has an option to merge duplicate securities...
