"Ancestor Element Contains Restrictions. Selecting Ancestor"


I am trying to edit a cube sheet restriction, but when I select a level I receive a message stating, "Ancestor element contains restrictions. Selecting ancestor"


To edit restrictions for children levels, the parent level cannot contradict them. This means that in order to edit the children, you should make all elements available for the parent level. This can be accomplished by selecting the 'All' option at the parent level.
