I have FULL CONTROL perms on a library that I'm working on. However, when I go to the settings, some of the columns won't let me click on them to make changes or delete them.

Here are some of things worth noting:

  • When I open the library in SPD and click on EDIT COLUMNS, I can only see the columns that I'm able to click on in the site; The other columns don't even show up here.

  • The columns seem to be single or multi line TEXT fields.

What do I need to do in order to change this?

  • What kind of columns are having this issue? Are they apart of a content type? – Josh McClanahan Feb 9 at 0:07
  • All columns are part of the same content type. I'm able to change a few of them, but not all of them. – DanJ Feb 9 at 1:59
  • I will say that they are all text columns (some are single line, some are multiple line) – DanJ Feb 9 at 2:01
  • Which content type do these columns belong to? Original content type or custom content type? – Emily Du - MSFT Feb 9 at 8:22
  • All of these belong to a custom content type – DanJ Feb 9 at 14:47
