Add content type dropdown menu greyed out in Modern SharePoint Document Library

Hello,

I was following the instructions from this article about adding content types in modern SharePoint:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/609399c7-5c42-4e25-aff0-b59d4aa1867f

Although Allow management of content types is turned on in the advanced library settings, the Choose content type menu in the Document Library Add column menu is still greyed out. Why is that, how do I fix it? Here's a screen capture.

Thanks,

Yasmeen

    In this way only all published content types can be added. Please go to content type hub gallery in the SharePoint admin center, then published content types that you want to add. After that, you could add content types in this way in the document library.
