Issue Details

When I place a new subVI, it shows up with (clone) appended to its title. I also cannot edit it when this happens. How can I fix this?

Solution

This is caused by the VI reentrancy settings found within File -> VI Options -> Execution (from dropdown). You'll want to set the reentrancy to Non-reentrant execution. Once you do that, your VI will be allowed to create copies that can be edited.
