    Anyone run into an issue with 5.1 module builder where you can't update a module item, you can only delete it.  I'm logged in an administrator and I changed permissions to everyone thinking that would help but still no luck.  How do I get the ability to update and existing module item now that the link to edit is gone?

    Sounds like the identifier field is missing, and so the list grid can't display a suitable URL to click on.

    Try this:
    - Navigate to Administration  > Module Builder
    - Select your dynamic module
    - Click on Backend screens tweaks link
    - Click on  Add / remove columns in the table (grid) button for your type
    - Drag an existing column to act as the new identifier field - typically title or something like that.

    That should then give you something to 'click' on in the maintenance grid, so you can access the editor.
