Splits not working correctly

We have a recurring paycheck but the weekly amounts vary. When I go to categorize an unaccepted transaction I click on it and similar payees show on the right. If I click on one that's the same as what I have done before but with splits and edit those splits I click done and then confirm with that transaction. However it does NOT update with all the changes in the split I made. Please advise.

    Can you show some screen shots to clarify this. I have been using splits for many years and not had problems so there is something subtly different about your setup.

    For unconfirmed transactions, you should edit the splits in the transaction on the right hand side not in the register that will get overwritten by the confirmation you chose on the right.

    Also, please show the version of MD and the operating system, that helps a lot in figuring out issues.

    Hi. Thank you. I am editing the splits for the transaction on the right
    hand side under similar payees. I choose the split and then update the
    categories and amounts and click done and then confirm on the same one on
    the right that I just updated. See attached.

    I think I understand the problem. I can't recall if I every edited a split under the "Similar Transactions" list. It may be that you are actually editing the split on the previous transaction? That would be bad, this should be looked into by IK.
