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.
