Is Fixed Asset check box locked

Hi everyone,

I had created a few items and later found out that to convert them to fixed assets I will need to delete them and create new items. The items were not used in any Purchase or Sales document. They were just created/saved.

Then I went on docs.erpnextcom and saw the video of a previous version. There we could make an item a fixed asset after it was saved.

I am not talking about creating an Item an asset after it has been used in a DocType which has been submitted. But at least give the users an option to check the box after the item has been saved.

Deleting and making the item again is a time and effort consuming process.

Is there any specific reason that ERPNext has made it the way it is? Can anyone provide me with a solution? Maybe some setting which needs to enabled?
