Error message: The current line is not a glossary entry.

I'm working with a glossary I created myself. I have used the Workshop to convert two-word phrases to a three-letter short form using fhy from family history.

But I have a few two-word phrases that still have two letters as their short form. For instance, "above all" is abbreviated "aa." If I type "aa", I do get "above all" in the advisory. But if I type "aal" for the fhy form of "above all," it's no longer there.

I tried to edit the phase manually, attempting to change the short form to "aal," but IT gives me the error message. "The current line is not a glossary entry. First place the cursor on a glossary entry before retrying."

I am able to edit other entries in the glossary, but not any of the two-word phrases that remain with a two-letter short form.

Some of the two-word phrases were changed (as expected) to a three-letter short form in the fhy format. I am able to edit those.

Can you help me understand what is happening? Thanks.
