i'm trying to edit a region. i selected it, then tried to choose "split" from the edit context menu, but the "split" and meny other commands are actually inactive. that happens even on any other region i try. anyone knows why that can be? thanks!

You likely have the edit point set to the mouse pointer, which if using the region context menu would be worse than useless. Try using the keyboard shortcut 'S' instead. Or set your edit point to the playhead and use that with the region context menu.

I find it much easier to put the pointer in object mode, select the resolution of the snap/grid units, position the cursor over the point in the region where I want the split to occur, and hit the "s" key.
