Faceplate config disabled in spite of Application Engineer access right
I have followed steps in manual 3BSE049230-510 (Process Graphics) page 293, in effort to change faceplate configuration. In config view all options are disabled (gray) and I'm not sure why, since my user account is a member of Application Engineer User Group. Can you help me?

This question already closed but I would like to clarify some points here anyway, because no one answer seems to be fully correct.
1st misapprehension: faceplates of objects in ProcessObjExtLib do not belong to ProcessObjExtLib library - it belongs to the ProcessObjExtLibGraphExt extension library. In order to edit main faceplate the "ProcessObjExtLibGraphExt" library must be opened, "ProcessObjExtLib" not in deeds. If ProcessObjExtLib is released but ProcessObjExtLibGraphExt is opened you will able to edit faceplate PG2 as well as any other PG2 graphic aspect of extension library.
2nd: even "ProcessObjExtLibGraphExt" is "released" it is still possible to edit particular faceplate in the Control Structure by selecting "Override" command from faceplate context menu. Aftet approval and resolving links you will have faceplate configured according to your needs.
3rd: "release" state can be reverted to "open" state without problems from Library Structure. But every time you "unrelease" library the minor version of library will autoincremented. This change can't be undone.
Thanks for your attention and goog luck!
