    Hi AlexeyS

    This is Ahmad from Quixel Support. 

    >> Are you referring to the entire "Material Instance Editor" settings!? If so, then the way to open it is by double-clicking the "Material Instance" icon (as shown below).

    >> If you're referring uniquely to the "Parent" attribute under the "General" section within the "Material Instance Editor" (as shown in the red highlight below), then that indeed is going to open the "Parent Material (node) Editor", if clicked on the thumbnail. 

    >> In case, you wish to change the parent material, simply click on the drop-down, right next to the thumbnail (as shown in the red highlight below), and that will open the browsing menu for selection.  

    >>  In case, you were referring to a different attribute/s, kindly share the screenshot again with that particular attribute highlighted and I will assist you accordingly. 


    Kind Regards,

    Ahmad Salman.
