Symbol Attribute Question!

When using pre 9.5 versions I added a couple of custom attributes to my symbols, PART_SPEC and MANU. I did this so I could automate the BOM import into our companies BOM system. For jelly bean parts (resistors and caps) I would manually change these in the schematics for each part. Those attributes show up in 9.5, but 9.5 doesn't allow me to change them. I type the new PART_SPEC Value in, in the Properties list and hit enter, but the change doesn't take. Yet if I change the VALUE value attribute to e.g. 100K that works just fine. Any idea as to what is going on? I'm a little disappointed in 9.5. Thanks in advance!
