Chapter 5. How to use Menus and Shortcuts > Gray vs. black commands

Gray vs. black commands

In a list of menu commands, some commands are in black letters and some commands are in gray. When a command is gray, it means that particular command is not available at that moment.

The most common reason a command is unavailable is because you did not select something before you went to the menu. For instance, you cannot choose “Open” from the File menu until you select a folder or file as the item to be opened. You cannot “Duplicate” a file unless you first select the file you want to duplicate.
