Issue Details

I have created an enum constant but I am unable to access the drop down to select the value I want.

I can't select the enum constant value on the block diagram.


Make sure that the correct tool tip is used when choosing the drop down menu on the block diagram. If you are in automatic tool tip mode click off the enum and then back to make sure the Operating tool is selected. 
Alternatively, you can manually select the Operating Tool by manually selecting it through the Tools Palette. Select View»Tools Palette or Shift + Right Click to show the tools palette and manually select the tool you need. 

Additional Information

The Automatic Tool sector is recommended because of its ease of use and simplicity. However, the manual selection is available as an alternative method of tool selection.
