Some of the menu options (and toolbar buttons) are context sensitive and are only activated if an appropriate item is selected in the PlayList window. For example, the "Clone Music Page" menu option is only available when a page is selected and remains disabled otherwise, "Save Song" is available if a song, or page is selected, but is not available if a play list is selected.
