Resource Allocation

I don't know if I actually have an issue with the Allocation or if I just don't understand how it's supposed to work. 


I have a project list that has children.  Each project has the same children (Planning, Design Acquisition, Design, Construction Acquisition, and Construction).  The entire project and all phases of the project are assigned to the same person. 


I populated all the children with the names of the project manager so when I filter it shows all phases of the project.  My allocation shows 100% for all phases, but I can't change the allocation percentage, so it shows as over allocated on some lines, but not all, which also doesn't make sense. 


Can someone explain how it's supposed to work and/or if something is wrong with the formatting?
