Is your cursor "free" in the document? As in, nothing is selected or anything, and you are not in a table?

No I don't think it is, unless you have written your question inaccurately. A greyed out menu means that option is not available in the current context. The question you link to deals with a separate issue relating to the global Unity menu not being accessible via keyboard acceleration i.e., Alt+F for File etc.
