Schedule Values Not Editable

I'm trying to edit values in a light fixture schedule. The light fixtures are all visible in plan. I thought that was the requirement to make them editable, but there is apparently some other criteria. What else do I have to set?

 

Thanks!

no, he means to use a layer combination that has all layers visible and unlocked, & name it something along the lines of "All Layers On & Unlocked" or similar.

 

note -- also ensure that anything you want to work with also is Element Unlocked:

the only time i have things Element Locked are:

  • Grids
  • Site Boundaries
  • reference points / lines

Your schedule is impacted by the current Layer settings when viewing the schedule. Not only do the layers containing the elements in your schedule have to be visible, but if you want to edit them they need to be unlocked as well. The easy solution is All Layers On & Unlocked and then use the criteria to control the schedule content.

I seldom lock layers.

I can't find "All Layers On & Unlocked". Is this a Model View? I can just turn all layers on.
