If I'm on the trusted list for a profile, why can't I change the privacy setting?

A relative added a branch to the family tree and put me on her trusted list to access the profiles. She inadvertently made a couple of very old profiles private when thay should be open. Why is it that I can be "trusted" to edit a profile but not to make a simple correction like this?

Dave, I appreciate the spirit of your question. We all want profiles to be more open.

Lianne's answer is correct, but if a profile is over 200 years old you can ask one of us to open it for you.
Thanks but I think I can get hold of her and straighten it out from here. I was just wondering "why that rule/"

There are a few changes that can only be made by Profile Managers, including changes to the Privacy levels. So if she adds you as a Profile Manager to those profiles, then you'll be able to make those changes.
