Can't move credit back to cinematography

Adding a more detailed crew list to an IMDb page for an episode of a 'whodunnit' web series I worked on. We had two DoPs per episode: one doing the flashback scenes, and one doing the police interview scenes. I am able to list the DoP working on the interview scenes in the 'cinematography' section, but adding the flashback scenes DoP makes IMDb try to move the credit to "directors". This is not correct as the director remained the same across both sequences, but selecting "move back to cinematography" does not work and the page refreshes only for the credit to remain in the "directors" section. Is this a current bug or have I done something wrong? Thanks!

If you enter something like "director of photography: flashback scenes", the credit is not moved.

Note that the credit data should reflect screen credits.

I'm not sure why "Move back to the 'Cinematographers' section" doesn't work in that case. It does work in other cases.

@Peter_pbn​ Apologies for the late response. I have attempted this again (disabled browser add-ons just in case) and am still having the issue (see images). The credits for the DoPs appear as "Director of Photography: Flashback Scenes"/"Director Of Photography: Interrogation Scenes". However, your workaround does work so I will use that instead - thank you.
