Categorizing Education Tuition Expenses

I don't see a tax category aligned to Form 8863 or the AOTC or Education or Tuition Tax credit (being verbose to help searches). Any suggestions on how to categorize expenses that should ultimately become tax credits on the tax planning summary?

    I noticed that Form 2106 is listed, but expenses in this category don't seem to be reflected in the Tax Summary.

    BTW, I'm using the latest release of QW HB&R (R26.21, Build 27.1.26.21), but this has been an issue for a while.

    Part of the issue is that there is no way to add tax line items to the list of Credits. I'd be interested in knowing how one does that.

    Thanks.
