Entering extra or minus points

How can I enter minus points (e.g. for late submissions) to the OLD grade book? I created a new "assignment" for "late penalty" points (no submission) but no matter what I enter into that column, it does not seem to change the student's grade. Same issue with an extra credit "assignment" column.

Do these assignments need to be a certain % of the grade? Be assigned a certain number of points? Either way, I would know how much might be given to any one student until the end of the course. 


I am just confused about this (if it is even possible) or, if it is not possible, any ideas for a "work around"? Should I just enter extra or deduct points from the points given for a specific graded assignment?
