Math in line item entry window is broken

Just updated to version 6.7.0 (Build 607.44072.100) When entering numbers in a line item and having it do the math, the math is wrong. I typically enter the cost of items that will have a sales tax associated with same items, e.g. 12.29 + 35.99 = 48.28 * 1.0925 is not 39.32  it's 52.75. I'd post a picture but not possible. It wasn't broken in the previous version . .

Oops, I see this is covered in another post  please ignore1

For those who can't seem to find the "other post" ... was the solution to the problem to NOT press "=" in the middle or at the end of your calculation entry? Something like 12.29+35.99*1.0925 ?

If I type "50+50*1.1" and press return, I get 110. So skipping over the "=" key still seems to work in that case.Quicken Mac subscription. Quicken user since 1990.0

Yes, the workaround solution until the developers (hopefully) fix what they broke in version 6.7 is to omit pressing = at the end of your calculation, and just press Tab to move to the next field.
If you enter 2 * 3 = 6, Tab, then Quicken will put 3 — the last value entered — in the amount field. Not what anyone would expect.
If you instead enter 2 * 3, Tab, the Quicken will put 6 — the result of the calculation — in the amount field, the value anyone would expect.
