enter image description hereI am trying to create a new custom setting in salesforce but the Setting Type field is greyed out and fixed to Hierarchy. What could be the possible problem?

  • weird, could you attach screenshot to your question?

You Can enable list custom setting schema Setting Page

Setup > schema Setting Page > List custom Setting


Please consider using custom metadata types instead of list custom settings. They are way more powerful: allow packaging of the records, support more field types, have better protection (on type, field and record level).
