RecommendOnly not working

Describe the issue or problem
I select section editors can only make recommendations from user roles. When I add Assign Participant, the Recomend Only checkbox is not selected (checked). Similar situation is valid for Permit Metadata checkbox.

What application are you using?
I tested OJS 3.4.0-5 and 3.4.0-4

Hi @peditor,

I think these settings are distinct from one another as the second one can apply to non-section editors, and other participants. It might be that you do have to select it twice, or if you don’t select it, and choose a section editor it may still apply - you could test this out with a test submission to see if the section editor is only capable of recommending.
