cannot edit jobs in GUI

I know that if I edit the job in Management studio I may not be able to edit the job again in the GUI but I haven't editted my jobs outside of the gui and now it won't let me edit them.

Does changing the schedule in Management studio prevent one from editing the job in the GUI? This is the only thing I can think of is if my backup changed the schedule.

    Thank you for your forum post.

    SQL Backup jobs can become uneditable and undeletable from the SQL Backup GUI if the user:

    1. Adds additional job steps in SSMS / Enterprise Manager.
    2. Uses syntax that SQL Backup does not recognise.
    3. Permissions, the logged in user using the SQL Backup GUI does not have the permissions to edit the job.

    Using SQL Backup 5.2, I am unable to reproduce you fault symptoms.

    Can you please check to ensure that the logged in user account has the necessary permissions to edit the job?

    Many Thanks

    I created the job and I am the one trying to edit the job so I should have permissions.

    I didn't add any steps but I think maybe the schedule was changed in SSMS. Would this cause the problem?
