How to edit variable type when inherited from parent?

I am trying to follow along to a tutorial for a 2D game and the camera boom option is not allowing me to edit it. Whenever I hover over the grayed area, it says that I cannot edit the variable when it is inherited from the parent. Any suggestions on how to fix ? I am new to the unreal engine world. Any help is greatly appreciated !!


bump !!!

you cant change the type of inherited variables, only the value of the variable can be changed. for example if you had a float and you changed the type in the child to int then it wouldnt be the same variable and would cause errors. but if you had a float in the parent with default value 1.1 then in the child you could change its value to 2.3 which is fine since its still the same type.
