Divide parcel by sliding bearing

I've appended an image of a parcel (reddish lines), created from a polyline by using the parcel creation tools.  You can see that this is a parcel by its listing (upper right).  

 

We want to divide it by sliding a line parallel to the southeasterly end, as shown, in a northwesterly direction.  Simple, right?  

 

As you can see (lower left), when we're told to pick a point within the parcel or a parcel segment, we are told that "Selected entity must be of type: Parcel."  

 

But it already IS a parcel, as its listing at upper right already demonstrated!

 

As the young folk say, WTF?  How do we convince the program that what it LISTS as a parcel actually IS a parcel?  

 

Thanks!

McL,

Are you sure it's a parcel? If it's not in Prospector, it's not a parcel:

Thanks, Dave.  My error was in having left the scale so that the parcel label was microscopically situated, and I therefore attempted to pick a line rather than the label.  The program will recognize the label pick, but not a line pick.  My error.
