Transfer Shares from IRA to Roth and not on Tax Report

I have seen questions about transfering cash from a IRA and not have the transaction show on the tax reports. I have a similar issue. I'm doing a rollover from an IRA to a Roth. Fidelity allows you to transfer shares from one to the other, so there is no cash involved. I am running Q2017 on windiws 8. I tried setting up a taxable brokerage account  and I do a "Transfer Shares between accounts" from the IRA to the Roth.  I can't seem to assign a tax category for the transfer.  The action on the IRA is Removed and on the brokerage account is added.  Has anyone else tried this?

    FYI - you are doing a conversion not a rollover.  Converting to a ROTH is a taxable event so you need to account for the taxes.  They probably should have taken tax withholding out of it.

    Yes, I am doing a conversion so taxes will apply.  I just can't get the transaction to show up on the tax report or in the tax planner.    Thank You

    Wow - that link takes us back to an answer that is 6 years old. I had the problem in Quicken 2016 and it still exists in Quicken 2017. Looks like Intuit could make an effort to fix it. In order to get the transaction to show up in tax planner correctly I had to show the money being transferred into a checking account and another transaction to show the transfer to the ROTH IRA. But the money has to go directly from the IRA to the ROTH - otherwise it will be a withdrawal and a contribution.
