    Disabled (greyed out) buttons, symbols

    isyiw

      Hello,

      I've downloaded the Flash CS5 trial and am trying to use the software, but a lot of buttons and symbols are greyed out for me and I don't know why.  Here's a typical use case for me:

       

      - Open Flash CS 5

      - Create a new Flash AS3 Project

      - Try to use the buttons on the right-hand toolbar, but they are greyed out

       

      Also, I can import images to the stage or library, but I cannot click anything or edit their properties.  See attached image for a screenshot of the buttons in their disabled, greyed-out state.  I can even open an old project made in CS4, but again, I cannot edit any symbols that I've already made.

       

      Is there something I need to do to enable the buttons?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
