Versioned data says it's not registered as versioned when starting an edit session

We have a feature data set that has been registered as versioned. When we try to edit feature classes in that dataset it shows a pop up that says the layer is not registered as versioned. But when I look in the properties of the layer it shows that it is in fact a versioned feature class. (see images below)

The only thing I can think of that might be affecting this, is we have a layer in the feature dataset that gets deleted and recreated each week. If a new layer is added to a feature dataset that is versioned, would that cause this issue with the other layers in the feature dataset?

HI Levi Roberts‌,

You are correct, if you add a new feature class to a versioned dataset, the entire dataset needs to versioned again. It will NOT removed any version edits already there.

Here is the documentation. This is the box before Step #1.

Registering a feature dataset as versioned registers all feature classes within the feature dataset as versioned.

However, if you add a new feature class to the feature dataset after you have already registered the feature dataset as versioned, the new feature class is not registered as versioned. This allows you to load data into the new feature class before you version it, which improves data loading performance. Since you cannot register individual feature classes within the feature dataset as versioned, you will need to register the feature dataset as versioned again. Be aware, though, that until you register the new feature class as versioned, you will not be able to edit any of the feature classes in the feature dataset.

Hope this gets you going.

Thanks George. Sounds like we may just need to rethink out structure a bit. Appreciate the quick help.
