Register Memo field stopped being populated from Memorized Payee List

Recently when I enter payee information in a transaction register and the payee has an entry in the Memorized Payee List the register's Memo field does not populate from the Memorzed Payee List Memo field. The Payee field auto fills and there's no problem with the Catagory field. All three checkboxes in the Edit Memorized Payee window are blank. How do I fix this.

    Are you creating a new register transaction from the new transaction entry line in the register?
    Are you sure the MPL entry is used to build the new transaction? Or is Quicken using a previous register transaction as a model for the new one?
    Please check to see that all settings related to memorization and recall are enabled in Edit / Preferences / Data Entry & Recall.
    It might help if you showed us what you are seeing ...

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words …
    Can you please capture one or more images of the parts of your Quicken window showing the issue, sensitive information blacked out as necessary to protect your privacy but annotated to describe the situation, and attach the image(s) here?
    The Windows Snipping Tool (available with Windows 7 and up) can be used to capture a partial screen image and save it to a file.  Microsoft Paint can be used to annotate the image.
