    This is actually working as designed, mostly.

    The editor settings are saved in files that are usually owned by version control. When you select Perforce as your version control provider, the inspector checks whether or not the editor settings file is open for edit. You haven't got a connection to Perforce, so the code plays it safe and assumes that you haven't got the settings file open for edit and disables the rest of the settings.

    The fix we've implemented for this issue is to get the inspector to explain this with the VCS status label at the foot of the inspector.
