I am using MultiTerm 2009 in Studio SP2 on Win 7 64 bit.

Usually you can add terms when you're in the Editor pane by marking a term on the left and one on the right and then selecting Add New Term from the right-click menu. But after I edited an entry in the Termbase Viewer MultiTerm stopped doing that. Now it says "Level is read only".

How did that happen? And more importantly: how can I make MT editable again? Anonye?

I'm having exactly the same problem. I would like to add new terms and I can only get a dialogue box saying "Level is read only".

Does anybody know why this happened and how can I switch back to editor mode?

Thank you,
