Can't annotate PDF

I am new to DT and to this community. I have been trying to figure out how to annotate PDF documents within DT3. I can see the options I want to use, but they are always dimmed/unselectable. See the attached image. Any help pointing me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated. NOTE: The highlighted text in the image was added using Preview app. I am trying to figure out how to do something similar within DT3.

For me, the following works, for example to highlight text in a pdf:

  • highlight the relevant pdf file in DT3;
  • in the toolbar above the now displayed pdf click this button to display the editing bar:
  • select the text in the pdf that you wish to highlight then click on Add or removed highlighting of selected text in the toolbar.
