Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create two sections.
2. Include a repeating grid in section 'A'.
3. Drag another section 'B' in the repeating grid.
4. Make edit options should be 'Auto' under presentation tab.
5. In section 'B', drag text input/ text area with edit options as 'Auto' under presentation tab.


Root Cause

As row editing options are given as 'None' under Operations Tab of the repeating grid, the section is appearing as read-only.


Perform the following under Operations Tab of Repeating grid Layout properties:

1) Change the Row editing options as "Inline".
2) And Inline edit mode as "Rows always editable".
