This is a project I imported from Eagle (not so bad by the way). I resolved all schematic compilation errors. But now I am facing some small issues in the PCB part:

On the properties panel when I select any component, footprint is grayed. See picture. Not a big issue because I can still update my footprints by the menu option (all, or one by one).

Do you know why all my components seem locked? Could I revert this to a "normal" situation where footprint name and library could be modified? This way I could push to schematics modification of footprint done in PCB.

I tried to "update all component footprint" - did nothing.

This is Altium Designer 18.1.8

grayed footprint propreties

EDIT:

Ok, new components that I added since the conversion seems to work as usual. But old one are still locked.

It seems that it is grayed because it is an IntLib as integrated library (locked) and not PCBlib as usually used.
