SWE won't let me enter a length for a wire

So I have a single, 22AWG hookup wire going from pin 12 on a plug over to pin 12 on another plug. I was able to successfully give the other wires (shielded twisted pair wires) in this harness a length by right clicking on them in the drawing, going to properties (wire 1) and just typing the length in there.

 

This worked great, as I could see the part number of those wires and their length in my report. The problem is that SWE won't let me assign wire length to the 22AWG hookup wire. I can right click on the wire in the drawing and go to wire properties and enter the length, but the "OK" box is never active/always shaded gray.

 

What am I doing wrong? I'm so baffled, as this worked for the other wires in the drawing!
