I have a user that is part of a permission group that i want to be able to alter library/list permission. The permission group was assigned a custom permission level (Permissions Administrator) that has the following permissions selected

List Permissions
View Items, Open Items, View Versions

Site Permissions
Manage Permissions, Create Groups, Browse Directories, View Pages, Enumerate Permissions, Browse User Inofrmation, Open

Unfortunately the Library Permissions button is grayed out under the Library tab of the Library tools.

Any help?

I think Manage Permission is required to tweak @ Site Level, I think "Manage Lists also has to be given

I believe the group permission needs to include Manage Lists as well.
