You don't seem to have pressed any keys, Try Alt and/or Ctrl plus a text key.

Hi, GrahamSkan.  I think you may have misunderstood the OP's question.  I think he is asking about the Categories and Commands being greyed out.  Any ideas on that?

I DID NOT press the CTRL key.  That's the problem.  I was madly pressing A, b, c, d, etc.  but not the CTRL key.

Yes, you must start with a key that doesn't input a text character.
