scheduling Shape Tag JM9

Not applicable
So, I'm trying something new to me. I have a parking garage renovation project and I am scheduling parking signage.

My idea is to insert the JM9 Tag and schedule it. This way if the owner comes back and changes the stall name I can change in the tag and it updates in the schedule.

Trouble is... The custom text cells will not allow me to edit them in the schedule editor. I can edit the headings, but not the value cells. All layers are turned on and unlocked. Am I missing something really simple here, or can I not use custom text schedule parameters on a simple object like the JM9 Tag I am using??

A little help here would be appreciated!

Okay, the answer is simple, and kind of stupid

You have to zoom in on the schedule when you have your text smaller than usual, i.e. 5 pt font. It locks the cell zoomed at 100%, but if you zoom to 200% you can edit it. I don't understand why... But this is better than a functionality limitation with scheduling the jm9 shape tags that I feared.
