Can't detach component

I’m trying to detach an instance of a component, and it’s not working now. It was working till yesterday. I’ve tried using the KB shortcut, the right-click menu, and the instance menu in the inspector. Any tips?

If this instance is nested in another instance, you can’t detach it as you can’t change objects inside instances. You can only detach top-level instances.

Thanks Gleb! That helped

I think this can be done if you option drag to make a copy of the master component and then it will let you detach said copy.
