Default Can't edit component properties

Hi, I'm just getting into Flow 3D for a college course. I was going through the tutorial and had no problems navigating the ins and outs until the subsection of component properties.

While the tutorial screenshots indicate I am able to edit most of the values in all categories of component properties, they are greyed out on my screen. For example, the tutorial asks me to input values in Thermal Conductivity and Density*Specific Heat, but the respective bars on my screen are greyed out, and values are unable to be changed because of it.

I think this may just be a very minor issue with my property setting, but I'm really stuck here. Can anyone help me solve it?

Most likely you have not activated relevant physics models in the physics tab, like heat transfer model.
