I've googled this extensively, and read a dozen posts on this forum about how you have to unlock and un-hide all the layers that walls might be on so that the schedule becomes editable. I'm still missing a crucial piece of information.
I've created a window schedule, with a few extra Custom Text Fields. I can't edit the values in the Custom Text Fields.
I've turned all the layers on in the plan view, the schedule editing window, and the layout that the schedule is in ... to no avail. All layers are unlocked.
I've done a 'select all' (with all the layers turned on in plan view) and done 'unlock all' .... still can't edit the schedule.
The little green square and green cube (in the schedule editing window) are not greyed out. And I'm not
I'm at my wits end here ... I know I'm missing something but I can't put my finger on it. Can anyone help?
I always have a layer combination saved "All On & Unlocked". When you save your schedule view, you need to open the view settings and change the layer combination to your version of "All On & Unlocked". Close the settings and rebuild the schedule. Hopefully that fixes it, if it doesn't you may have other issues like locked elements, hot linking or even teamwork to address.

Tanks for your reply DGSketcher. I had actually done exactly what you suggest ... created a layer combo with everything on and unlocked. And this view is applied to the "Modified Source View Settings" of the schedule view that has been placed on the layout. My custom fields are *still* uneditable.
There is no hot linking, and there is no teamwork action.
Do you know if 'grouped' walls are considered locked?
Is there a way to 'unlock everything' on every story?
I tried to replicate this issue using the default template for Archicad 24 INT 4018. Unfortunately, I was unable to reproduce it, the custom property can be edited in schedule. Could you share with us some screenshots of the custom property set up and the schedule? It would be great if we can take a long at your sample file also!
I had to solve the issue quickly so I ended up creating custom properties in the window classification ... so that I could allocate property values within the window tool, and no longer needed to edit properties directly in the window schedule.
Ironically, I've noticed that I can now change the Element ID directly within the schedule. No idea what happened ... nor how it was undone ...
