Yes. There was a change in 2.19.0 which allows you to now overwrite the calculated tax amounts.
In the Sales Journal, you can enter your amount of say 100.00 and the Tax 1 amount will be calculated for you at 13.00. You were always able to override the calculate Tax 1 amount and set it to 12.99 for example which adjusted the Item Total to 112.99. This behaviour was requested for the Purchase Journal by mnay users in the non-profit sector and USA users.
Prior to 2.19.0, you would enter your details in the purchase Journal and enter your amount of 100 which would calculate the Tax 1 amount of 13.00. Attempting to change the Tax amount to 12.99 caused the amount expensed to be 100.01 which would balance to the Item Total of 113.00. There was no way to override the calculated tax and have the item expensed at 100. In 2.19.0 you can now override NewViews.
To make this change easier, move the Item Total and Tax 1 Amount columns before the Amount Column by clicking on the column value and the press the keys Control (Ctrl) and the left arrow at the same time. This way you can work left to right when entering your values.
In regards to the Sales Journal Item total amount, NV2 needs the amount to be entered or calculated from the quantity and item price for Inventory and Cost of Goods average price calculations.
I hope this helps.
