Quickbooks changes rates from inclusive to exclusive of tax when I save estimate as a PDF. How do I stop this from happening?

I'm changing over from Quickbooks Pro to Online, and tying myself in knots trying to work some things out. My latest problem is with estimates/invoices.


When I create an estimate, I enter all rates inclusive of tax, as per the norm in our industry. The estimate looks tidy and comprehensible, with the total tax amount calculated below the subtotal. 


When I save the estimate as a PDF however, Quickbooks changes the formatting and shows all rates as exclusive of tax, some of them to five decimal places. This looks untidy and unprofessional, and is confusing for customers.


How do I stop Quickbooks from doing this?

I would really appreciate help on this, thank you.
