Unable to make commands

Hello there!

I would much appreciate it if you were able to help me out. I am trying to use Audacity for the first time but for some reason the programme turns it’s texts grey nearly all the time and then I am naturally unable to do almost anything. The text isn’t grey at the beginning but becomes that very soon after importing a sound clip. Even tho I think I do exactly the same things that might have worked once they become impossible to do. Perhaps there is a trick to keep the programme in some sort of an “editing mode” all the time? It seems such a nice programme if only it allowed me to edit…

P.S. The problem is the same even tho I keep the track I am trying to handle active…

Thank you very much already!

Johanna
