Payment distribution excludes negative distributions from the invoice GL Distribution

On invoices with negative distributions, users may find that the payment is generated without the negative distribution and this may cause an out balance if project information is included in the distribution.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Steps to Duplicate

1. In Records> Invoices Add a new invoice for $120.00
2. On the GL Distribution tab, add three lines of  distribution for 3 projects
DR account:
Line 1 amount $100 Project A
Line 2 amount $20 Project B
Line 3 amount ($20) Project C
3. On the Payments/Credits tab pay the invoice
4. Open the payment and go to the Distribution tab
Total amount of the positive distribution lines is $120
Distribution line 1 = $100/$120 = 83.33% of the total distributed to this line.
Distribution line 2 = $20/$120 = 16.67% of the total distributed to this line.

The payment will have the following distribution, based on percentages of the positive distributions
DR account:
Line 1 amount $83.33 Project A
Line 2 amount $16.67 Project B
