How can I delete ”greyed-out” objects in UFT Object Repository?

My object repository has objects whose names are black and some whose names are grey. I can edit and delete the black ones but not the grey ones. How can I delete these?

If you are using ALM with version control, then the test/Shared Object Repository needs to be checked out to enable editing.

Black colored objects are in the Local Object Repository (LOR). Grey ones are in the Shared Object Repository (SOR), or the test/SOR is not checked out of version control.

The only way to edit or delete objects in the Shared Object Repository is to open the SOR in the Object Repository Manager (Resources> Object Repository Manager) and enable writing by clicking the Pencil icon (Enable Editing).
