All Shortcuts are greyed out MacOS

Version 3.4.2 on MacOSX M2Max MacBookPro
Trying to do simple edits like COMMAND-X but can’t. All the shortcuts are greyed out on all the dropdown menus.

I have forced quit. rebooted laptop. and more… to no avail.

All help/advice is welcome.

The shortcuts still work. Have a look in TextEdit. Type in some text, select it, then click on the Edit menu - the text for the shortcut keys is in grey, but the shortcuts work.

Ah… you Smaht! thank you
