Custom attribute become read-only

Jason Chan (379) | asked Jan 21 '14, 9:53 a.m.
Hi Guys,

I just created a new Attribute for my Story work item, which is of an custom Enumeration Type with 3 options:
1. Not Started
2. In progress
3. Ready

I then added this to the Presentation Editor of my Story item, and it works fine when I create new story. However, when I try to open Story work item that I created before I add this new attribute. I see that the drop down for this new attribute became read only. Meaning that I cannot edition this new attribute for my old story item.

Just wondering if anyone know the root cause for this?
