I absolutely hate Sharepoint. It’s so convoluted, why MS? Can’t we have one central location for permissions? You guys really are jerking yourselves off with SP.

Have you seen in SharePoint online where one library has it greyed out and one does not? I am Site Collection Admin for all, but this library has me confounded.
