Red Outlined objects cannot be edited in edit mode

Apparently when i select multiple objects in object mode red outlined objects cannot be modified in any way. please help

Not much info to go on…
You select…right click something then shift select others…or use box select and select a group…
Then enter edit mode…and you are saying in edit mode you can not modify anything?

i cannot modify anything in edit mode except one object. if i box select, all except one object is outlined color red.

this is a screenshot of what is happening

It looks like you’re using a version of blender that doesn’t support multiple-object editing! I believe it was released in the 2.8 series.
