AF Server Version 188.8.131.5259
My non-templated attributes are showing the description box as ready-only.
I'm connected as an Administrator and appear to have RW access to Elements.
Is there something else I am missing?
I found a similar case. Are you by chance viewing this with an AF Client 2.10 (if you go into PSE Help-> About, it will show you both the client version you are running and the version of the server you are connected to)? There is a known issue where AF Client 2.10 disables attribute description for AF server < 2.9.5, and the symptoms are the same as what you describe. If this is the case, the options are as follows:
1. Upgrade to server > 2.9.5
2. Use a client version < 2.10
3. Add the Description as a column in the Viewer (the section of PSE where you see the attribute list):
You should then be able to edit the value in cell under the Description column.
Please let us know if this helps or not.
Yup, that's it! We are planning a server upgrade, so in the meantime we'll use the workaround you provided in option #3.
