Can not edit any blueprint Defaults or Graphs

When I load up the ARK dev kit I can create my own assets and access mesh and other media content from the game but I can not access the settings of any of the blueprints . Primalgamedata , engrams, items non of it . I am trying to make a core game mod and have followed all the set up steps described . I know it takes time to load up the first time and that is not the problem . The problem is “The Graph is not Editable” according to the UI and there are no Default settings to be seen in that tab. The blueprint editor does show mesh , texture and skeleton in the component tab but no way to alter the BP settings and visual code graph.

We have been having this blocker on starting our mod for days now and really getting frustrated . What am I doing wrong ?
