Model Section - Properties Pane not allowing editing of columns

Recently, a particular PBI file of mine has lost its ability to access the column editing section within the properties pane when viewing the model section on PBI desktop.


I did utilize Dynamic M Query parameters previously within this file and would like to utilize/edit them in future development. Without this editing section of the properties pane I am unable to do this.


Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

I now also have this issue.  Very frustrating when there are audiences from multiple locales for one report and the ability to set the format for a column on the report view is very poor.  I have to use a measure instead and this is sometimes not possible either depending on the use in the visual.

@scottriddell , Hope this is not a live connection. It should work with import or direct query mode

@amitchandak , I am using a local model, not a live connection. 


It appears to be an issue with this one particular PowerBI file. When I create other local models in PBI, I am able to access this column editing section within the properties pane
