Dividend transaction records are being saved as stock splits

Mutual funds - Investing - started today January 2, 2021 - last time I updated transactions (on or about December 10th it worked correctly)

When loading records from a QIF file that are marked as 'Dividend' as the transaction type they are saved in the file as stock splits.

When manually entering a 'dividend' after it has been saved it appears in the transaction log as a stock split. (even though the 'dividend' was selected and verified it is saved incorrectly

Will there be a correction to the bug?

    When entering the dividends, make sure you select the Income or Reinvest action and not Div - Stock dividend.

    That is for manual entry - that does not address the automated import function that is broken. This is a bug

    What version are you running - did it recently update since December ?
    .... Help ---> About Quicken
    And have you looked at your QIF file with Notepad - and can verify all is ok ?
    Can we get a snippet of the QIF file transaction in question ?

    Earlier you were talking about importing from a QIF file.

    When entering a dividend manually, do you click on Enter Transactions and pick Inc - Income as the transaction type? 

    Using Div - stock dividend, which is for dividends paid in shares, will generate a split.

    I would try this in a new data file, I think there is some kind of corruption going on.  Validate & Repair might help.

    Let me start by say that the QIF transactions aren't coded as dividends, they are coded as a buys.
    The lines starting with N is the "action".
    NBuy

    The line starting with M, is for a memo.
    MDividends

    In my data file your first QIF transaction gives this transaction in Quicken.
