If you have already chosen Raft as your Platform Addition.

You have selected "Raft Only", the only being a key word. Please select a different menu option to get both a raft and another feature like skirt or brim.

If you have "Raft Only" selected under the "Platform Addition:" dropdown menu, then there is no skirt or brim. That is why it is grayed out. If you change the drop-down selection to "Raft With Brim" or "Raft With Skirt" then it will allow you to make changes in those fields.

As detroitus said, if you choose Raft Only, then the settings for Skirt and Brim will be shown grey.
If you enable Skirt and Brim, their settings will be able to be edited.

We are having the same problem.
"platform addition" is greyed out when you first get into edit. And Even though is says "Raft Only", when we slice the model, there is no raft.

Also, when I first installed yesterday, there were about 5 templates like High Quailty etc... but they are all gone now

OK, like for Naser404, deleting and reinstalling all ideaMaker files fixed it for now. It brought back the quality templates too . But that only took 1 day to go bad. And no Vicky, you can't choose "raft only" as it is greyed out everywhere
