    Title block parameters not directly editable

    Our title block has all the usual parameters that normally show up as blue when clicking the title block, meaning each parameter can be clicked on and edited directly. However in one project none of the parameters show blue. The entire title block shows red (our standard element selection color), meaning none of the parameters can be edited directly by clicking on them. But they CAN be edited through the Properties palette, either for the sheet or for the title block instance. Sheet number, name, drawn/checked by, etc.

    I think the project was purged at some point, but these should all be stock system parameters (not shared parameters), so I'm at a loss here of why these can't be edited directly anymore.

    Is the title block object pinned in the project?

    It's the same as if I edit the title block family from a blank project where the TB fields work as expected. It has all the normal labels with parameters set as usual.

    That's it. Thanks. Never seen that before. And since it's a Workshared project, when clicking on the TB, the "make editable" icon appears first instead of the Pinned icon, and I didn't notice in the Ribbon that the Unpin button was active.
