Ribbon Error - you have not been allowed as a workflow designer on this teamsite.  Contact your administrator for access

Hi Team

We do not use the site settings to configure allowed workflow designers, instead we lock down the available actions with AD groups.  However, on one site, we have a ribbon error which says:

"you have not been allowed as a workflow designer on this teamsite.  Contact your administrator for access"

Has anyone seen this before or know why it is happening?  I have site collection administration rights to the site so this cannot be the case, and I can create workflows no problems at all on all other site collections.

I googled the error and some people are discussing site permission inheritance as being a cause, but in this case that doesn't make any difference.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Cassy
