[protege-discussion] slot facet changes not prophagating

I'm working out my first ontology, and have run into a problem for which
I can find no answer. I'm running ver. 3.4.8 on Kubuntu Linux 11.10.
I set up a slot with a cardinality of "required - at least 1", and a
default value that was a string.
What I wanted was for an editable default value to appear in class
instances using the slot.
PROBLEM #1: What I got was a NON-editable default value. That isn't
acceptable, so I went back to edit the slot, removing the "required",
and the default value.
PROBLEM #2: Returning to my class instance, the changes were not
reflected, and the problem of the non-editable default value could not
be fixed (at least by me). My instance was thus not unusable. I deleted it.
PROBLEM #3: It got worse: I created a new instance, only to discover
that nothing had been changed. I still got a non-editable default value.
Now it appears that my class has to be reconfigured. What if I have 1000
instances, and deleting the slot was not an option?
Can anyone tell me what's going on, and how to fix/prevent these problems?
Thanks for any assistance you can offer!
