Security Price and Share changing by itself after entering.

I have had trouble sometimes, where I add a security manually. The price will auto correct.
For example. The share price is 2.1659 for that date, and I purchased something like 114.24807643 shares. The amount will automate itself and the only thing that stays is $2.1659 as the price. If I change the Share and Amount price it will work, but then in my portfolio it shows the incorrect shares understandably. I have entered manual prices before so I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here. Even removed the security completely and added it back after.
I think there is some auto conversion going on somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks like something to do with decimals. I read that the max dpc is 18, but when I enter 18 as the max DPC, the price and shares are altered automatically. Bringing it down to 16 dpc are better, but somehow larger shares end up showing negative. I am now trying 8-12 DPC for testing... Any clues as to why? Thanks.
