How to post V9 journal to partner

I want to reverse an incorrect payment via a journal entry and have analytic accounting enabled. None of the journal types allow me to assign my posting to a partner, only analytic account (which is not appropriate for this type of adjustment since the original payment was not charged to an analytic account). How can I post a journal to a partner but not an analytic account?

The partner on a Journal Entry is set when you enter a partner on a Journal Item.  Analytic Account is always optional.

It is the Journal Item input that is the problem - there is no 'Partner' field; each row starts with the 'Account' field. I have tried to reproduce this problem on various test databases (with matching config options) but to no avail; they all show partner.

From Settings --> Technical --> User Interface --> Views, search for views matching the "account.move" model, with "partner_id" in the View Architecture and "Form" as the View Type. This will show you all views that add, remove or modify the partner_id field in that view (or use it as an anchor for another field). account.move.form is the main view. There must be another view that removes or hides that field.
