Editing Paragraph Rules?

I'm using InDesign CC v15.0.1x64, Windows 10.

 

When I create a new style and give it a paragraph rule (let's say Rule Below, 1pt, Black, Offset 0.125in), then when I go back to edit the style, the paragraph rule can't be edited. It shows as if there is no paragraph rule applied, yet it's right there. The Rule On checkbox becomes mysteriously unchecked but the rule is showing. If you click the checkbox on, it creates a new rule style over the existing one that can't be edited or deleted. I've tried creating new styles, creating new documents, restarting, rebooting, and nothing is solving the issue that I can't edit a Paragraph Rule after I create a style for it.

That shouldn't be happening. I'd suggest the troubleshooting step of restoring your InDesign preferences described in the link below. Be aware that when you do this, you may have to re-enter your preferences again, but sometimes this is what you have to do:

What happens when you click on the drop down menu and then select either Rule Above or Rule Below, which ever one is not checked (see screenshot)? It sounds like which ever one isn't showing when the dialog is opened may already be on.
