Charitable Donations - California adjustment

I donated appreciated stock and the H&R software limited my deduction to 30% of my  Fed AGI

I then continued to the state program.

H&R California state program says CA allows up to 50% of Fed AGI (instead of 30%) and to enter the adjustment as a negative figure.

When I enter the adjustment as a "negative" figure it reduces my CA deductions instead of increasing them -

Is this an error in the software?

Also - the CA "adjustment" is to be entered as the "difference" - is that correct?
