    Hi, I would go to terminal and run ls -le against the directory to see if the cli output matches the GUI. Then try adding via terminal to see if you get the same issue, if relevant.

    sudo -s
    chmod +a "groupname allow read" directory name

    Then run ls -le again.

    Run man chmod for more info on the chmod command, if you need to.
