It sounds like something might be wrong with the Schmitt trigger circuit

It is apparently loading down the output of the inverter (which might be
normal, I don't know), and it isn't responding to its input signal.

There can be many reasons for this.  I'd guess that something isn't
"connected" right in your simulation.  Also try simulating just the
Schmitt circuit alone to verify that it works.
